Pee-Wee's Big Adventure Poster by markwelser Pee-Wee's Big Adventure Poster by markwelser
I'd like to do posters for all the Tim Burton movies. Or at least, the ones I really love so I started here at the beginning with Pee-Wee. A favorite of mine from when I was young and still a hoot to watch today.

I wanted to try out some different layout ideas with this by putting those weird red blocks above the design, keeping everything within the white boxes--including the credits.

Let me know what you think!

If this were the real poster, I'd go see the movie. It's simple and vintage. Gives mystery to those who've never seen pee wee. And it'd probably sell a-lot more than the actual poster.:) (Smile)

Gee, thanks! I was worried this one wasn't going to go over as well because of the weird red border being so prominent at the top and bottom. Nice to see people responding to it so well. This gives me the confidence to try and experiment a little more in the future with these!

Thanks! Glad you like it. My posters are very heavily influenced by the work of Saul Bass who I know did a few posters for some of Tati's films. I'm not foolish enough to even entertain the idea that I'll ever be half the designer Saul was, especially since all I do is just imitate some very superficial aspects of his work.

I try my best. I have lots of projects going right now that are in various stages of being finished. I do these posters in-between.

Good stuff, man. Nice design and layout, typography works great, and the limited color palette is perfectly chosen. Nice work!

Thanks so much! Typography has never been one of my strengths. It's something I'd like to get better at in time. Nice to see it's working with this one.

Simplicity is the first aspect of all good type design, so you've got that sorted on this one!

Looking around through your gallery, it looks like you've got the typographic stuff mastered. So I really appreciate the compliment! I only hope I'm able to be a bit more consistent in that department in the future.

Oh christ, I forgot about Larry. Just saw a deleted scene with him. His closing act would have been a spinning toupee! Classy!
