digital marketing agency, lacuna 5, has teamed up with artsupplies.co.uk to design a series of vintage-style travel posters inspired by famous artists from around the world. before creating the illustrations, the team posed the question: ‘what would travel posters look like if they were designed by a famous artist born in that place.’ this idea provided the concept behind the designs, and the result is a collection of images that transports viewers to a specific time and artistic period.

travel posters provide a unique sense of a destination we might want to visit, and similarly, art gives us a sense of the artist who created it. from claude monet’s impressionist view of paris to roy lichtenstein’s pop art new york, the project takes the style from an artist’s work, and landmarks from a certain place, and puts them together to create what a travel poster by that artist would potentially look like.
