Star Wars 1977:
Such an intrinsically 70's design and
worthy of a place in any retro
Pulp Fiction 1994:
Early 90's grunge design at it's very
best. One of my favourite movies and
one of my favourite movie posters.
American Beauty 1999:
A perfect example here of how
simplicity can often produce the
most memorable results.
As classic a design as you're ever likely to see. I just
love the trends in design of the first half of the 20th
Great use of light and colour isolation
here for an extremely effective design.
Planet of the Apes 1968:
Very clever Two-tone design here and
the use of text to make up the image
is a technique that was very ahead of
Star Wars Episode I 1999:
Very neat minimalist design on this
piece and the intelligent manipulation
of the shadow eludes to the movies
story in a nice subtle way.
The U.S. vs. John Lennon 2006:
Every aspect of the movies title is
captured here in a beautifully simple
design. Very clever work.
The Thing 1982:
Lots going on in this piece, very
effective though. The old fashioned
design works well and is almost
reminiscent of the old 1930's horror
This hugely iconic, often replicated
two-tone design has become one of
the most recognisable designs of all
Tim Burton's The Nightmare
Before Christmas 1993:
The art work on this entire movie
was exquisitely done and the poster
is no exception.
Sweeney Todd 2007:
Incredibly eery feel to this one. Great
use of light and shadow and colour
Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds 1963:
Another fantastic example here of how
simplicity can often hold the key to a
highly effective design.
V for Vendetta 2006:
Love this, quite quirky, vector
design. Great colour scheme too.
Forrest Gump 1994:
Lovely typography, beautiful composition.
This simple design never fails to conjure
up images for me of a wonderful film.
Jurassic Park 1993:
This, logo in the centre of a plain,
dark background style of design always
serves well to imply that there is
something big on the way and that
was certainly true of Jurassic Park.
Clockwork Orange 1971:
To succeed in creating such a creepy feel
in such a sparse design is an amazing feat
and that focused stare always stirs my gutty
