This poster is not to everyone’s taste, but then again how many people have been to Portugal? I have and Arian Buhler has definitely nailed the ‘art nouveau’ style unique to Portugal.
From my experience of Lisbon, I would have drawn sardines, madeira wine, peri peri chicken and sketchy locals in the town square shouting ‘hash, marijuana, cocaine…’ as they do (drugs are decriminalised in Portugal). I think we can all agree Arian’s design is far better.
