59 Magnificent Poster Designs

The Regional Design Annual is the premiere design competition—and the only design competition that recognizes excellent work by the region from which it originates.

In the meantime, we’ve rounded up a few exceptional poster designs that were recognized in the 2014 Regional Design Annual. Creative poster design is common among RDA winners every year, but these pieces take the genre to a whole new level.
