The sheer mastery demonstrated in the retro-futurisitic style of Belgium illustrator/designer Laurent Durieux is hard to ignore. It’s not just the novelty of bucking recent design trends and appearing to be from another era (think 1960s pop culture) that makes Durieux’s work so special, but also the level of detail in his work. Durieux’s eye for composition, typography and color only enhance his brilliant work, which (no surprise) has been commissioned by none other than Mondo (see related posts here and here and here).

As the summer movie season ramps up so does the barrage of movie posters. Most are not great (or even good), but these limited-edition Iron Man 3 posters by Uruguayan illustrator/designer Martin Ansin set the bar really high. Though these posters went on sale (and quickly sold out) at Mondo earlier this month, we can’t help but ogle at these superior specimens of cinematic posters, which feature metallic inks. These standard and color variant prints feature not only Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, but also Don Cheadle as Iron Patriot, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin and scenes from the movie. Mondo really is the go-to spot for prints and memorabilia (here and here and here), and this is a fantastic addition.

We always appreciate well executed reinterpretations of movie and TV posters (think Olly Moss and Mondo). We recently came across some work of New York-based designer/art director Laz Marquez, and he certainly falls into that category. Marquez’s ability to mix up his style seems to be a strength here; He does not employ one particular style for all of these works, but rather adjusts his style based on the subject matter.

Movie poster design can be a true art, and Austin, TX-based studio Mondo are masters. We actually love the official poster for the sci-fi thriller Looper. But Sony Pictures also teamed with Mondo  (and specifically illustrator/designer Martin Ansin) to create limited edition posters for the film (one in gold, one in silver, which apparently has some significance in the film). We’re sure these photos don’t even do them justice (both versions printed in metallic inks), but they are fantastic nonetheless. And we hear the movie is just as good.

Since reading about Texas-based Mondo in the New York Times late last year, we’ve been really taken with their work. This offshoot of theater chain Alamo Drafthouse commissions artists to design alternate versions of movie posters. Quite fittingly, they recently released a series of posters tied into and coinciding with Marvel’s blockbuster The Avengers. They are all brilliant, particularly the glow in the dark edition of Thor.
