More movie posters! Again, this one was kept pretty darn simple.
Here's a few of my other "rules" I try to keep to with these designs:
- Try to keep from relying on elements from the official poster. Otherwise, what's the point of doing it?
- Try to pretend like I haven't seen the movie. This one is pretty tough to stick to and I often break it, but I try to pretend like all I had to go on was a script so I don't just use visuals from the film. In this case, I used a box but didn't bother with all the crazy designs on it--it's just white.
- Try not to rely on the same colors of the official poster. Again, this is one I can't always avoid.
- Always use the original tagline from the poster. Sometimes I have a design in mind before I research what the tagline was. Hellraiser is a good example. "He'll tear your soul apart" doesn't mean as much with this as it does on the real poster because there's a picture of a scary looking dude. We don't know who "he" is with this one. Maybe the ambiguity adds to the mystery?
UPDATE: Changed the font and removed studio logos.
