Browsing through design inspiration I found this article of the elements of design for movie posters. It was an interesting read, but I don’t really like most of the examples they used, which lead me to research movie poster clichés. It’s interesting to see how most of these are the same. I feel as designers we have to challenge ourselves to create different designs, but at the same time we have follow the rules, and appeal our designs to audiences.
|Romantic comedies back-to-back|
|Action movie black and white|
|Horror movie eye|
Here are some alternative posters made by designers, I think these are more interesting, but I’m not sure if they would appeal commercially. I feel some of these don’t capture the movie to audiences viewing, such as what the movie is about and genre; it’s more of scenes from movies. Here are examples of the real posters and alternative designs on the right. Overall, I feel these are more creative and original. What do ya think???....
|Drive alternative design|
|World War Z alternative design|
