How Classic Poster Art Finds It’s Way Into a Modern and Timeless Look

I am fascinated by the work of Mads Berg. Mads illustrations have been characterized by a style which translates classic poster art into a modern and timeless look. Mads’s Berg main fields of illustration are Posters, Brand Illustrations, Key Visuals, Editorial Illustrations, Cover Art, Murals.



Mads graduated from the Danish Design School in 2001, and since then, he has been working independently as an illustrator. Occasionally working as a lecturer at design schools. Several times member of the jury, awarding the best in Swedish and Norwegian Contemporary Illustration. In 2010 he won the “Best Danish Children’s Comic” prize and in 2009 he won the Danish Design Prize. Mads’ poster art is represented at the Danish National Design Archives at the Design Museum.
