“We avoid this dangerous little bastard, called pc, to work with.” That’s how RAINBOW starts off their bio. Their hardcore attitude toward the physical process of design creates incredible results. These screen-printed posters are beautifully composed and contain so many interesting layers.

The greatest advantage of designing posters in this way is the texture. Above are some close-ups that show the amazing details that make up the gradients. Despite such organic texture, RAINBOW’s shapes are sharp and precise.

These posters strongly remind me of the work of  A. M. Cassandre, whose work inspired me to start Minimo Graph. Having lived and died before computers existed, Cassandre relied on more organic methods to create his shapes and gradients, which were comprised of the same kinds of textures and precision as these posters by RAINBOW.
