gigposters.comIf there is one site on the web I visit almost every day, it's Gigposters is by far my favorite website of them all. For inspiration and for fun. For incredible typography and some of the best visual communication out there.

I'm a music fanatic and I think I first found by doing a Google search on some band. Then I bought a poster I really liked and the rest is history!

Most of the funny stuff I see on the internet comes from Gigposters and believe it or not, on more than one occasion, I have read breaking news on Gigposters before reading it on my Yahoo homepage! You could probably make a case that I spend too much time on the site, and you might be right, but I can never repay, site creator Clay Hayes and the artists who post their work for how much I have learned and been inspired. So thanks!

Inspirational Gig Poster Designs - Part 1

I started making this post months ago and got overwhelmed with how many posters I wanted to highlight (I started with over 400 of my favorites!), so I've decided to break it up and feature the posters I find inspirational in alphabetical order over a series of posts. Where possible, I have linked to the poster artist's websites so if a poster is particularly interesting to you, you can find out more about the artist.
