Psychedelic Posters Catalog

The University of Texas at El Paso

2018 Catalog Design

The Psychedelic Poster Movement had a large impact on music and many other aspects of popular culture in the 1960s. The movement was influenced by the sinuous style of Art Nouveau as well as by the effects of LSD and other hallucinogenic drugs, which many artists used in an effort to attain the “psychedelic” experience. The bright colors were a result of trying to emulate this. For the design of this catalog, I was greatly influenced by the colors and patterns that were used by many of these artists.
