Beautiful 3D Posters Weave Letters with Hand-Drawn Blooms

As many of us are in the midst of winter, it's nice to see these illustrations of beautiful blooms by Aleksander Gusakov. The Ukrainian graphic designer produced a series of decorative posters highlighting colorful floral bouquets and bold text. Gusakov wove the letters between leaves and petals, and it gives the illusion that his compositions are 3D.

To create these works, Gusakov used a combination of hand-crafted illustration and a computer-produced font. This provides a nice visual contrast. The flowers are realistically rendered and feature intricate details – we see every small petal. Conversely, the font is flat and graphic with no shading at all. They together form lovely images meant to adorn your walls.
