Design from the Street – Graffiti Art

One of the best parts of the creative process is pulling inspiration from unlikely sources. I thought it would be a good idea to showcase some graphic design samples that display an immense amount of design ability, colour knowledge and artistic talent, but is from a different world than standard “graphic design”.

When going through this stellar set of designs it is hard to believe that it is all done by hand, and unlike digital designers, these designers don’t have the luxury of [undo]. The use of colour and creating a 3 dimensional space is outstanding and sometimes mind blowing.

What was once considered an act of vandalism, is now being utilized by big business as a way of marketing and advertising. So it just goes to show that you never know what might end up going mainstream.

I was so inspired and have such a great appreciation for this design style, we actually interviewed one of the contributing artists to this set, so look forward to that interview post, to meet one of the men behind some of these awesome graffiti designs. Create an impression and study at the Atlanta Art Institute.
