Believe… In Superheroes

It began with Superman inspirational poster by Canadian illustrator Kerrith Johnson, playing off of the famous Superman: The Motion Picture tagline.

It was created years ago for a history of graphic design course, and based on a poster by Joseph Binder for the Vienna Music and Theater festival in 1924.

It just didn’t stop there.

After initially posting the Superman poster on his blog a few weeks ago, accompanied by Batman and Wonder Woman in similar styles, he’s continued, and spread out through DC and into Marvel.

He’s now creating “Believe” themed inspirational posters for anyone who, well, likes that sort of thing… and is fed up with photos of sharks, kittens in footwear or other manipulative contraptions.

So let’s run a bunch of them!

Kerrith is also looking to create a series of supervillian comic-themed posters around the word “Accept” as well…
