We’ve long been a fan of Ty Mattson’s poster work, which you’ve probably seen in the PRINT RDA over the years.
As a kid, Mattson loved Star Wars, and obsessively drew everything from the characters to the sets. As an adult, he partnered with the brand on an officially licensed line of posters. Today is May 4 (“May the Fourth…”), and Disney has released a poster celebrating all nine films in the Star Wars Skywalker saga. (See it here.)
To ring in the day, we’re looking back on Mattson’s Star Wars line, which eloquently tips a hat to key moments in the original trilogy with some Saul Bass vibes.
Mattson has done other Star Wars work, too, including travel posters for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, playing cards, and more. Head over to his Instagram to check everything out.
Oh, and: May the Fourth Be With You.
