Soviet propaganda is the source for cutting edge constructivist design. No, really. Blogger Paulo Gabriel compiled a collection of creations from artists around the globe who use the strong lines, bold colors and block text to enhance their designs.
The style is a hit with band posters, both past and present. Dashboard Confessional and Franz Ferdinand are among the many musical groups that have used the attention-grabbing style of the USSR to gain attention for themselves.
Implications - Constructivism is an amazing platform for design, which is simple and easy to carry out. A brilliant source of information that can make anything look good, constructivism only requires a band, a poster and ta-da, a work of art worthy of envy from all your friends!
