I remember when these were actually in the papers, well not all of them i’m not that old, but these kind of ads were exactly what fuelled my curiosity for horror Movies and then once i got to work in the first video shop in my town…well, i don’t think i saw daylight for a good few years.
The Design of posters and ads like these were great, limited space to get the overall idea of what the movie is about and still visually interesting. I think some web banner designers could do with looking at these for inspiration on how to make use of limited space and keep it looking good.
The film titles were so much more imaginative as well. ‘The Blood Splattered Bride’ Awesome…i wonder if QT had called his film that instead of ‘Kill Bill’ whether it would has been as much of a hit?
The brilliant and wonderful artist Brian Sanders has made the new official MadMen poster for the upcoming series that starts on April 7th.
I’m a big fan of this 60′s style of illustration and love the fact that MadMen creator Matthew Weiner has decided to use this style to promote the series. I am now even more excited.
I’ve just finished these three versions of a poster for Rosemary’s baby…one of my favourite films ever.
I wanted to go another way a little and include Minnie and Roman in there as i think this adds a little more intrigue as to their role in the film if you hadn’t seen it already…who hasn’t seen it though right?
I also wanted to steer away from the colour green which seems to have played a huge part in previous posters, i’m sure due to the success of the original poster which was awesome. I did use the green for the title text on the middle poster though as na homage.
Hope you enjoy, please leave comments i would love to know whether you like these…or not.
So…it’s 1969…a kid, Jerry Levitan, tricks his way into the hotel room of a one John Lennon and armed with a reel to reel tape recorder (what!!! those things are heavy) convinced him to answer a few questions to which, much to Johns credit, rather than get the boy chucked out he answered the boys questions.
40 years later, as producer, he got together with Designers Josh Raskin, James Braithwaite and Alex Kurina created this Animated Documentary besed around the answers to the young boys questions.
The animation was made in 2008 and still works brilliantly well mainly down to the wonderful and poignant words of Mr Lennon but also by the great animated sequences.
This is great animation and motion graphics doing what the are supposed to do.
