Graphic designer Loes Claessens’ psychedelic posters are perfect for those who have a fondness for all things glitchy and brash. Based in Amsterdam, Loes employs a kaleidoscope of colours and pattern in his posters for festivals, gigs, exhibitions and magazines. Some of the work has been created under the moniker Studuo, the graphic design studio Loes recently co-founded with Valérie van Gerven and it’s interesting to see the differences in their approaches to design.

Loes tackles subjects in one big, visual punch, but it’s on closer inspection that you realise how well put together her work is. So much more than a whole load of internet and 90s references splodged on a page, Loes’ posters are carefully composed and have a humour about them, allowing their communicative purpose to shine through.
