The warm smell of sun-kissed flowers mixed with a hint of dirt comes into the mind when one thinks of spring. That’s what you feel like too, right? But, did you ever wonder what Botticelli had in mind when he pictured a few maidens celebrating spring equinox in the forest?
It might seem like an exquisite masterpiece, but ask any renaissance expert and he’ll inform you that the ‘Primavera’ still remains the most controversial piece of art since its origin and has been written about the most.
However, why are we discussing renaissance art here? You were here for spring posters, weren’t you? Well, let’s just go through the link between our Mother Nature’s joy and Botticelli’s chef-d’oeuvre. So let’s begin. There are various versions of the same story, but the widely accepted idea is that Botticelli was inspired by the classical allegory of the mythical figures and hence, portrayed the arrival of spring in a figurative style. He just wanted to depict the joy, the warmth, the blossoming fertility, and everything growing in nature, but in an enigmatic fashion.

Spring from Botticelli’s point of view has shifted from its pattern and has taken a 360° turn in today’s world. Art and design have become more explicit, vivid, invigorating, flashy, and less controversial of which our mysterious renaissance artist might have had no idea.
We might not celebrate spring like the maidens dancing in the classic portrayal, but we do know how to fancy some graphic design spring posters. Here we’ve gathered some spring design ideas and posters from various graphic designers, which will definitely make you feel like spring for 25 consecutive days.
So, let’s do it!

HWAL is a South Korea-based graphic designer who likes to have fun blending colors. This poster demonstrates circle icons with rounded, diffused edges, which gives them a soft, mesmerizing tone.

C’mon, who doesn’t like watching flashy neon signs on a cool breezy spring night? Valeria Arlova “lerler” gives some nice edge to the flashy neon signs on a dark smoking background. Not necessarily a traditional spring poster, the artist has fluxed the colors well, giving it a rebellious touch.
7. Spring Awakening
Image: Behance/Krzysztof Iwanski
The poster refers to a play written by Frank Wedekind in 1891. Due to its explicit and bare attempt to uncover the disguise of human morality, the play was banned for about 15 years. Krzysztof Iwanski pays his tribute to the ‘Spring Awakening’, which still remains evergreen after even a century.
8. Series Of Spring Posters

Spring is coming, so everyone is going to take out their denim and show off on streets. But instead of wearing denim, Victoria Vigdis has designed a spring poster for a fabric company that was featured all over Kharkov, Ukraine. There’s no reason this spring-themed poster should be missed out from the list.
9. Kungl. Konsthögskolan Spring Exhibitions

The Summer Studio designed and curated these outstanding posters for the Royal Institute of Art Spring Exhibition in 2016. Summer Studio was offered to create graphic design posters for the event. The most interesting fact about these posters is that the colors represented individual events and more than 35 posters of the same graphic design were created in a unique way. It’s just the blues and reds that swayed the spring exhibition. The Royal Institute of Art logo in yellow still stands out though.
Image: Behance/U Jung
Who said spring can’t be depicted as a neutral, faded, and washed up mass of flowers, leaves, and weeds? In contrast to the colorful, vivid spring posters, the nature aesthetics are pictured warm and tender in this one created by U Jung. Subtly simple and a home-calling spring.
11. Eye Of Spring

15. Berlin Botanical Poster
Image: Gloria Ciceri
Gloria loves botanics and she loves Berlin. That’s why she decided to scatter the Belin vibe in the form of screaming colors that give just the right touch to the coming spring. Crazy, psychedelic, and simply elegant. Her creative eye symbol logo blends-in well with the springy mood of the poster.
16. Spring is Coming

The spring poster by Sarahi Negrete strikes the eye as she uses some illuminating and holographic effects. The iridescent glow on a black-bobbed beauty looks stunning and refreshing. Not to mention the makeup trend, that’s been in for the spring too!

Basically a spring party poster, the warm reds, yellows, and pinks deliver a perfect rhythm as well as an explicit invitation to anyone who want to step into the party and enjoy the fun.
