Dexter Intro

I love this alternative title sequence for the TV showDexter by Ty Mattson, which is an animation based on his popular poster series. I’m a huge fan of the TV show and this sequence really captures its essence.

Retro Muppet Concert Posters

These awesome Muppet posters by Michael De Pippo, show each member of Dr Teeth and the Electric Mayhem – which is the house band fromThe Muppet Show. The composition of these simple designs, along with the great use of colour works so well to create a fun retro vibe.
