Cult Posters

There's no point us pretending anymore. We love posters. When Athena closed down, we cried a river. If we had our way, there'd be no such thing as blank walls.

But this doesn't mean that we'll hang/blu-tack any old one-sheet up. You won't find one of these monstrosities disgracing the walls of the ShortList office.

Which is why, when genuine poster greatness comes our way, we get a little bit excited. This brings us to Matt Needle, one of our new favourite people, who created these awesome designs for a selection of cult properties. From TV (Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire) to music (Joy Division) to film (A Clockwork Orange, Blue Velvet), Matt's work deserves to be a staple of any student abode.

If you fancy getting one for your own place then check out Matt's site here.
