Inspiring Poster Design

So as I’m working on my movie poster, I’m searching for inspiration not only from other movie posters, but graphic design in general. I’ve found a lot of amazing work, and here is some of my favorites:

  2. This is a great collection of a variety of inspiring poster designs, but especially the ones by Tomaz Opansinksi. His graphics are so intricate yet the posters themselves are simple – the eye is drawn to the single intriguing image. The first movie poster by Opansinski really draws the eye down to the movie title, a very clever way of making sure that viewers can’t miss the text. It’s the same trick that most poster designers create with white space, only using the image instead.

  3. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d most certainly donate to this brilliant blog! I guess for now i’ll settle
    for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.
    I look forward to new updates and will share this site with my Facebook group.
