Berlin is awash with incredible posters – in places pasted one on top of the other to the point where thick layers of colourful paper come peeling from lampposts and temporary walls – so it was really only a matter of time before a graphic design aficionado based there started photographing them to share with the rest of the world. Enter Posters of Berlin, a simple but effective blog designed to proclaim the design capabilities of the German city from the rooftops, placing the good, the brilliant and the very very bad all next to one another in a delightfully rich juxtaposition of aesthetics.

The simple format has caught on, as the About page of the site explains, spawning “children” blogs in Istanbul, Melbourne, Newcastle, Manchester and Riga. The creator hasn’t let this go to their head, however, and has no sense of hierarchy about which designs are better than others either. “This is simply a platform that collects the visual footprints of culture,” they say, “left on our beloved city for your viewing pleasure.” What fairer aim is there?
