Art Deco is a distinctive art style that has influenced many design disciplines, from architecture to visual arts. It’s characterised by cubist style geometric shapes and patterns, combined with a sense of luxury and glamour. In today’s showcase I present 30 brilliant examples of how the art deco movement still inspires designers and artists. See how the style is incorporated into posters, branding and illustration projects.

  2. Wow Chris, this is so very interesting.

    I’ve always found the art deco style so very neat.

    I especially love the Bioshock one. I love the art style of the walls, architecture, posters and signs in that game :)

    If you could do a tutorial in the future about creating art deco that would be so neat.

  3. Lovely selection. Very appropriate as I have recently moved from the UK to Napier, New Zealand, which advertises itself as “The Art Deco capital of the World”

  4. These are super cool, and I really enjoyed them. Some of these posters remind me of the flat graphics that are so pervasive in web design these days. Maybe design trends are a bit cyclical! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Man I love that Bioshock design and the game was jam packed full of sumptuous architectural design. The Rapture posters just really captured a time and place enhancing the whole aesthetic and atmosphere creating a really immersive experience. I spent most of my time looking at the walls! Love Art Deco.
