design after dark rave flyers collection Design After Dark   90s Rave Flyer Designs

The 90′s isn’t the one of those decades that sticks out for memorable design but one thing I do remember from the early 90′s is the bright, trippy, euphoric design of UK rave flyers. If you can remember dancing your ass off all night to trippy repetitive beats from DJs like Sasha, Carl Cox and Grooverider whether it be in a club or field then some of these flyers you might recognize from back in the day. Let’s take a trip back to the old skool and all together now…. whistle posse blow!

    Flyer #10 is actually a painting by the Russian-German-French artist Wassily Kandinsky.
    The name of the piece is “Yellow, Red, Blue” and it was painted in 1925.

    Thanks for the info. It isn’t the first rave flyer to use modern art I’ve seen quite a few that have used Dali and the one of Helter Skelter in this list is taking inspiration from Escher

    Just though i’d add that the early dreamscape images used (with or without permission) were originally by Barry Blackman, there’s a hardback available with some familiar work that many old skool ravers would instantly know…… anyway the book is called ‘creating digital illusion’ for anyone interested.
