FYI Monday: Retro Cosmic Design by Barton Damer

This post is part of the For Your Inspiration Monday Series showcasing the most inspiring designs out there. Each week a new artist or design style will be presented in order to get your creative juices flowing for the upcoming week. I hope you enjoy the series.
Barton Damer is a digital artist from Dallas, TX. I like to describe his art as retro cosmic design, though there’s much more to it. By combining 3D typography with beautiful lightning effects and natural textures he creates stunning works. It comes as no surprise that he’s work with great bands and big skateboarding brands. One highlight of Barton’s career must have been when he was awarded the Digital Artist of the Year Award by Computer Arts, Intel, and 3d World Magazine in 2009. For more inspiration please visit his portfolio Already Been Chewed. You can also find him on Twitter.

  3. I’m glad you like Barton’s work as much as I do. I think I’m most impressed with his versatility.

  4. This is what it’s all about, you often see brightly coloured and futuristic digital art and you often see retro designs, but Damer has gone a step further and combined the two, I could see some of this being used for Back to the Future, it has the perfect style to represent it.
