Creative Movie Poster Inspiration

I had never really realised the creative work that goes in to some of the best movie poster designs that you see and how much inspiration you can actually get out of them. I recently entered a competition to design a post-apocalyptic poster and did a fair amount of research. There are a lot of posters which are simple cut and paste jobs which really does little to promote a film. But some of the most effective posters are the ones, I feel, that don’t let on and really just hang a carrot making you want to see the trailer and find out more. To design something with intrigue, inspiration or that makes you double take is an art in itself. Here I have showcased some of the most creative movie posters in my opinion and ones that are memorable and a great source for design inspirations both from a graphic and typographic standpoint. I will endeavour to keep this post updated with new designs as and when then come out.
