Poster House is dedicated to celebrating all voices within the poster community. In an effort to share with our audience the widest array of poster talent, we are partnering with numerous young designers around the world to create Instagram Takeovers—full days on our Instagram account in which up and coming graphic artists give us a personalized peek inside their poster-making world.

Once a month, head to our Instagram to see these amazing contemporary designers. Get special access inside their studios, hear their philosophy on how posters work, peek at their latest poster creations, and ask them questions!

This Monday, we are featuring Fiona McDonnell. McDonnell is a freelance illustrator based in the North of Ireland. Using her distinct style of illustration, McDonnell has been commissioned by a variety of commercial clients including LUSH, Facebook, and Dazed, all while sustaining a personal practice. Poster design has been a driving force throughout McDonnell’s career, with the accessibility of posters as art for the masses being what initially drew her to the medium. Since then, she describes each poster project as, “a chance to challenge myself by exploring new ways of creating and combining illustration, typography, and visual communication.” The illustrations in these posters, along with McDonnell’s overall illustration practice, are often accompanied by commentary and self-reflection on social issues, politics, music, and film (or whatever else she may be interested in at the time.)
