There's nothing more excited then the release of a new movie! ...At least for me... I love wondering what twists and turns, relationships, or comedic relief will come my way when I watch a new movie for the first time. What better way to get fans buzzing than the release of the movie poster??
In honor of South by Southwest (SXSW) Film week, which started yesterday, I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite movie posters. Some were created after the films were released while other's were posted in the lobbies of our favorite movie theaters.
Juno, Interstellar, Forrest Gump, and The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers are great examples of minimalist design. In this case minimalist design is the "use of the fewest and barest essentials or elements, as in the arts, literature or design." The designers used very minimal design elements to effectively portray the concept of these four films.
Lincoln and Jurassic Park's posters are just so beautifully done I had to include them. They both portray a sense of mystery to me. The peace yet turmoil expressed by the black and white image of Daniel Day-Lewis draws us in and makes us what to know Lincoln's story, thoughts, and motives, while Jurassic Park's poster brings out the curiosity of our inner child and makes us think "What's behind those gates?"
I hope this makes you want give the movie posters you see a closer look.
What's your favorite movie poster?
Not many people know this about me, but I love the works of Andy Warhol. The daring ways he used color and repetition in his work had me at "Hello."
Andy Warhol started as a commercial illustrator and later became a leading, and at times controversial, figure in the visual arts movement known as pop art. Some of his works include imagery from pop culture, news, advertising, and celebrity icons.
If you've been to a grocery store (or Target) in the past few weeks, you may have seen the bold and colorful new packaging for Perrier. For a limited time only, Perrier is featuring the designs of Andy Warhol with four exciting new label designs.
Some bottles feature quotes from the pop artist including: "People should fall in love with their eyes closed" ; "Everybody must have a fantasy" and "Art is what you can get aways with."
During the 1980s, Andy Warhol created a series of silkscreen prints depicting the bottles of sparkling water brand Perrier expressed in a bold color palette. the works were an extension of the pop artist's continued exploration into portraying consumer products in new, graphic ways, in which he developed more than 40 works using the signature Perrier bottle as his subject.
What do you think of the limited-edition packaging? I'm loving it!
