I discovered the work of Mads Berg last week through the excellent Grain Edit. Mads is a Danish illustrator who is influenced by classic poster art and the Art Deco. His work features a wonderful blend of crisp modernist forms and beautiful faded hues, and his illustrations pay homage to the golden age of poster design in the best possible way.
Mads has worked independently as an illustrator ever since graduating from the Danish School of Design in 2001. Since then he has worked with an impressive range of clients including Carsberg, Legoland, SAS and Lego. His work covers a large variety of fields including poster design, brand illustrations, cover art, murals and editorial work. I’m particularly taken with his illustrated posters (a great selection of which are available to buy through Arte Limited). More images can be seen below:
