I love posters. I’m not just talking about a few cleanly-framed posters on my walls. We’re talking a serious addiction here. Every inch of wall in my house is plastered with poster designs ranging from alternative film posters to illustrated quotes and letterpress swag from last year’s HOW Design Live.
So every year when the Regional Design Annual comes out, I find myself eagerly hunting through the winners to see the latest and greatest in poster design from across the USA.
Will I fawn over your poster design work in the 2016 Regional Design Annual? Be sure to enter by April 1 if you want Jessica Walsh, Gail Anderson, Timothy Goodman and other icons of design to evaluate your design work and—perhaps—bestow it with the most prestigious honor for designers in the US.
In case you’re as hungry for poster design inspiration as I am, check out this vast array of winners from the 2015 RDA (and see all of the galleries here).
