Marcello Dudovich

Today, I have fallen in love with Italian poster design.

I’m a big fan of the vintage, Liberty-esque.  But up until now, I have only really researched all of the French artists, all of the Art Nouveau styles.  Today, while looking for typography inspiration for an art show poster I am working on, I stumbled upon so many amazing Italian designers that I can’t help but giggle and grin with giddiness.

Let’s start with Marcello Dudovich (1878- 1962), considered one of the forefathers of Italian poster design.  After attending professional art school, Dudovich began working for Ricordi and created his iconic illustrations for Mele di Napoli (“Apples from Naples”) and Pirelli.

Here are some of my favorite designs of his:

If you like what you see, here is Marcello Dudovich’s official website, which features a plethora of other designs (under ‘Opere’).  Enjoy!
