Travel posters at their best showcase memorable places in distinctive ways as well as the talent of remarkable artists. A case in point is the beautiful series of travel posters by Salisbury, New Brunswick-based graphics designer Eric Goggin. The stylized design, bright colors and buoyant fonts are all fun. Many of Goggin’s posters have a pleasing vintage feel to them and focus on locations throughout Atlantic Canada.
While well-known cities and areas, such as Gros Morne, St. Andrews By the Sea, Cape Breton and the Bay of Fundy, are featured, Goggin also directs some of his artistry to lesser-known but still picturesque locales, including Cape Forchu, N.S., Shediac, N.B., and Cavendish, P.E.I. Of course, because they are travel posters they fulfill their principal purpose by inviting curiosity and wonder about the places depicted and make the viewer itch to get on the road to see these sites.

Love these posters and great to see Fogo Island— a very fond memory from my time in Newfoundland.

As a Baby Boomer, I have to choose the last one as my favorite, and I will insist that the silhouetted figure on the roof is a hippie.
That VW bus is iconic and conjures up a certain vibe, for sure! 🙂
