A Window to the Past: Amazing Art Deco Posters by Mads Berg
Sep 25, 2018
Mads Berg is a Danish designer well known for his exquisite posters. His singular style is simply stunning. Check out the posters we have here and you will be hooked too. His incredible and bold art deco artworks will certainly take you back in time. Mads posters are elegant, colorful and stylish. The way he uses lines and curves delivers a modern take on the classic poster look. It is a beautiful combination of great illustration, type and shapes. In my opinion his images bring a certain glamour back to advertisement. It is a simple and elegant way of delivering a very clear message. I can see Don Draper – from Mad Men – showing these to his clients. So take your Old Fashioned cocktail, seat back and enjoy.
Mads work was already showcased here twice: back in 2014 and 2013. Since it has been a while and because he has a ton of new and inspiring pieces, we are showcasing his work again. And remember to check his website for more info and artworks.
