Poster Design Inspirations Straight from the Fairy Tales [You the Designer]

Poster Design Inspirations Straight from the Fairy Tales: "

Get some fancy poster printing inspiration from some of the most unlikely characters of the grown-up world. You see, we at You the Designer still consider fairy tales fun. (And yes, we still fancy being a child sometimes, too.) With the upcoming release of Red Riding Hood in theaters in mind (and other fairy tale-inspired movies), we’ve decided that a round-up of fairy tale-inspired digital paintings should be in order. After all, fairy tales never grow old. They still amaze, educate, and entertain. With the advent of computers and tablets, the retelling of the tales only become more exciting.


In terms of presentation, both painting and graphic design has never been the same. These art forms have definitely become more accessible to more people and, although artists have shifted from traditional drawing and painting methods to more technologically sophisticated digital painting techniques, the basics are still there—as long as there is a child, so shall the ageless fairy tales live.


It is also worthy to note that the following graphic artists have taken the liberty to render these characters in ways we have previously not even imagined. Enjoy this collection and feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
