A while back, I wrote an article featuring some of my favourite poster designers on Instagram. Of course, there’s a lot more than 8! So, just in case you happen to be looking for some new, amazing artists to follow (of course you are!) – here’s an updated list. And if you’re not sure if you’re following the incredible designers from my first article, check it out here!

Matt Ferguson (@mattfergusonartist)

Matt’s work just screams ‘cinematic’ – and everything he puts out makes my jaw hit the floor. Somehow his work always manages to mix being completely classic while still feeling fresh and contemporary – and I’m here for it. Just take a look at this recent piece for Star Wars Episode One!

Marie Bergeron (@mb_illustrations)

Marie’s work is a desaturated treat for the eyes. Every piece is full of tiny, rewarding little details that you can pore over for hours (I do!). Her work has a delicate vintage tone to it that comes out particularly strongly on posters like this one for Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom:

Courtney Martin (@camartinart)

Courtney’s art is something else. Warm, attention grabbing colour palettes and a truly mind blowing attention to detail make her work instantly recognisable. As a social media bonus, she also shows some great breakdowns of her posters and how she arrives at the finished compositions along with some of her reference – which is an awesome learning tool for other designers at any stage of their careers.

Doaly (@_doaly)

Doaly’s work is bright, vibrant and in your face. I love it! It evokes a really striking comic book feel, which makes sense given the amount of work he’s done for Marvel. He often hides great little details in plain sight – like in this poster for Obi-Wan:

Dan Mumford (@danmumforddraws)

Dan’s work is unmistakable – high saturation colour palettes and stark, high contrast imagery combine together to create something really wonderful. His pop culture influenced work lends itself to album covers and branding just as often as alternative film posters.

Thomas Walker (@tommypocket)

Minimal, powerful colour palettes and a distinctive, stylised illustration style make Thomas’s work truly special. As well as posters he also does a lot of book covers, bringing the same cinematic approach to them as he does his other work.

Haley Turnbull (@lescarletwoman)

Haley’s eye for a striking design always makes her work stand out to me. Her work is simple yet sophisticated and she has an amazing eye for typography. Seriously, check her stuff out!

Katherine Bjelke (@kategraphics)

A special mention has to go to Katherine’s work – instead of the more film focused work of the other designers I’ve mentioned, her work concentrates entirely on the space industry. She produces amazing posters for specific space missions and as a huge space nerd myself, that’s pretty exciting! Muted colour palettes and a clean mathematical eye for layout mark out her work.
