You have seen his work, but might not know his name. Today, I’d like to introduce Laurent Durieux, a brilliant Belgian illustrator and teacher based in Brussels. For years he’s specialized in the design of movie posters, mostly under the brand of Mondo. Since 2012, when his designs were first introduced in the US, he’s been unstoppable. As soon as a new poster pops-up online, it’s immediately sold out. It is not a question of days or hours or minutes, they are gone in seconds.

The madness enthralled by his stunning, heart-stopping creations has no word to define it. For instance, when he shows his work in the US or Belgium, one would think he’s a rock star; people line-up to have his posters signed. Illustration and art collectors agree that his work is on a league of its own.

What many don’t know is that his best ally is his own twin brother Jack who serves as his second brain by contributing with his typographic skills. Laurent provides the images, Jack his master typography; together the pieces come to a perfect completion.

Durieux’s work is adored by celebrities such as Bob Gale, Steven Spielberg, or even Francis Ford Coppola, who writes, “Laurent Durieux beautiful work takes poster art to a high level. The images, which are stunningly executed, express ideas and themes of the movies he has chosen in new terms. They communicate much without words, and stand alongside the wonderful tradition of illustrative art.”

Take a look at his brilliant compositions, pay attention to the details as when you look closely, you will find numerous hidden hints and allusions that makes it all kind of magic.

As his former student, I’m thankful for his inspiring work as a graphic designer and for his invaluable lessons as a teacher.
