Marrakesh Travel Poster by Matt Hood, Graphics Without Borders

Marrakesh Travel Poster

This original vintage-style travel poster was inspired by a recent trip to Northern Africa. The main composition shows the Jami’ al-Kutubiyah mosque, Marrakesh’s largest and most prominent, surrounded by palms and orange trees in the foreground. The Atlas Mountains form the backdrop. I’m proud of the detail in this piece, especially the Arabic script that forms the poster’s border.

Wiesbaden Travel Poster by Matt Hood

Vibrant Wiesbaden

This colorful travel poster captures scenes of the historical highlights of Wiesbaden, Germany, a gorgeous spa town in the valley of the Rhein River just a short drive from bustling Frankfurt. On the six-scene poster below. clockwise from top left, the Russian Orthodox Church – known locally as the Griechische Kapelle – stands sentinel in the hills north of the town. The Kurhaus has drawn generations worth of visitors to its calming and rejuvenating parkland setting. The imposing Marktkirche, which survived Allied bombing in WWII, is center stage in Wiesbaden’s main square. One of main gateways to Wiesbaden, the Hauptbahnhof stands amid verdant settings. Luisenplatz is home to the city’s oldest Catholic Church, St. Bonifatius and an equestrian statue that honors those how died fighting Napoleon. And finally, the classical 19th-century Nerobergbahn funicular still takes visitors up to the heights of Neroberg for impressive views of all of Wiesbaden.

Frankfurt Nightfall

This is a continuation of my modern take on classic travel posters. Where many of my previous travel posters were small towns or bucolic scenes, this was one of my first true cityscapes. I loved the challenge of the hyper-detailed skyscrapers, the rippling river reflections and the dramatic color palette of dusk.
