Originally used to promote cabaret and tourist resorts by train, steamship and airline companies, travel posters from the 1920s have become iconic designs. The artwork depicted luxurious travel with strong and powerful imagery, which was influenced by the geometric shapes and bold colours of the Art Deco movement at the time. The style still inspires graphic artists today, who use the visual traits made popular by the originals to create their own travel posters and tribute art. In today’s inspiration showcase I present a range of poster designs, both old and new, all based on the vintage 1920s Art Deco style.
