Steve Thomas Travel Posters

I’m liking the work of Steve Thomas at the moment, an American (I think) illustrator and graphic designer…

Like most things that appeal to me, it’s a very simple idea that’s been executed very well.. Steve takes imaginary or unreachable destinations and then creates a travel poster advertising it as a holiday destination..

In each case there is an instantly recognisable feature/ landmark, a cheeky written reference to the source of the idea, and always a very good reason to go there…

Drawn in a soft 1930’s Halcyon style, I like the inherent contradiction within the images, wherein something you know to be made up or totally inaccessible, becomes an almost achievable destination, thanks to the familiarity of the presentational format.

The Star Wars ones I think are especially good (but then anyone whose read more than a couple of posts on this blog, would probably know that already…)

    There are very entertaining and so well put together. Have to say the Star Wars one is also my favourite.

    The best thing about these posters is they cover all types of travel destinations. Some of them simply look imaginary but are fascinating nevertheless.
