I woke up about 2 hours before I should have done, needed to rush to the loo and then couldn’t get S’mouse songs out of my head. So I came downstairs, cranked up the heating (it’s so cold in our flat) and started Stumbling (while watching my favourite comedy show – the O’Reilly Factor!).
I came across this article about movie poster design on Gizmodo. It’s a brilliant collection of movie posters and a typological study of similarities! This is probably my favourite in the sense that it’s also quite disturbing:
Unfortunately I’m also seeing a proliferation of Olly Moss style posters popping up everywhere. It seems that the big companies haven’t resorted to using them for their campaigns yet (and I doubt they will to be honest) however I do feel that the ‘vintage’ and ‘minimalist’ redesign of film posters is becoming a tad trite. Which is a real pity as I love Olly Moss’s work and I also love a lot of the other posters of this style.
Some of my favourite Olly Moss designs:
You can certainly see what my colour scheme is can’t you?
So what do you think? Is there a proliferation of this kind of design now?
I think they ARE clever – however I don’t think they’ll ever seep into the mainstream. I can’t imagine seeing posters like this outside our multi-plexes somehow.
