Beautiful Beatles prints by Oliver Barrett

17 Sep

Designer and illustrator Oliver Barrett has created these four posters for the Charting The Beatles project. The site of the project features some very interesting and complex information graphics that are really worth checking (here), but I was drawn to the simplicity and beautiful colors of Barrett’s prints. The delicate and very well crafted illustrations show the instruments that each band member played. And I really appreciated the fact that he illustrated some lesser known, not exactly iconic, images of the Fab Four.

“These four illustrations are for the Charting the Beatles project. I chose to create complex portraits of each member from my favorite era of their careers. In addition to the portraits, I depicted each member’s array (or lack of in Ringo’s case) of instruments through vector silhouettes.”
