Happy Tuesday, everyone!! For this week’s Alternative Movie Poster Tuesday I wanted to look at some Star Wars. More specifically, we’re going to check out some posters from Episode IV: A New Hope. This is one of my favorite movies of the series and I love the original poster design. I found a really cool selection of alternative designs as well.

The amount of detail in this poster is awesome. The illustration is so well done; that along with the ripped edges gives it a really great comic book feel. Limiting the design to only a few colors was a good choice because there is so much to look at here. I get a sense of depth because there are so many levels and layers. I could definitely stare at this poster for a long time. This guy does amazing work.
This design plays off of President Obama’s campaign logo and iconic Hope poster. I thought this was was clever and it works really well with the shape of the Millennium Falcon ship. The little bit of texture here works perfectly as well.
This design incorporates the rebel symbol in a really cool way. It’s prominent but it fits in with the overall concept here with the Death Star exploding. The ships in the bottom-left perfect the design. I love the look of the fire too. I’d be curious to see how the artist made this one.
Comment and let me hear what you think of these designs or suggest a movie that you would like to be picked for the next “Alternative Poster Tuesday.”
