45 Creative Poster Designs

One of my favorite forms of finding inspiration from the works of others is through poster designs. The large canvas opens up a variety of options for designers to display their creative skills in many different forms. Some are minimal and focus more on typography and shapes, others are flashy and take advantage of beautiful use of colors and a few take the grunge/retro approach adding appealing textures to their designs.
