Modern Interpretation of Landmarks
House Graphic Design, Web Design and Art Direction has created a beautiful series of landmark posters made from solid coloured shapes. The colours used in each poster are meant to evoke a sense of where each landmark is located. I assume that the colour schemes were chosen based on the general lighting and weather of each location as well as the culture associated with that landmark. Each sits on a pale background that is a lighter version of another colour worked into the landmark itself. This was a very effective series of posters showing how distinctive certain landmarks are while using only minimal detailing. These landmark interpretations can capture any persons attention despite their simplicity. They stray away from being overly boring by using a variety of shapes that overlap rather than just using the shape of each landmarks silhouette. House Designs had this to say about their series,
“Having become interested in the stories behind some of the world’s great landmarks we began to explore ways of expressing their iconic nature without succumbing to the silhouette.
The results of this process lead to the ‘Landmarque’ print series; using layers of shapes and colour to recreate the familiar forms and evoke a sense of location.”
Every designer is inspired by things around them, and this notion is extremely present within the idea of this series. One would be able to tell that the House design team loves bringing culture and experience into their work. It is not an easy task to recreate something that is already so notable and pull it off effectively.
A journey is recreating the past.
