I recently discovered this website and I really wanted to share it with you guys! It’s such a cool and relevant idea and another great way to look at movies.
Art of the Title is the leading online resource of title sequence design,and covers everything from film to television to videogames. The site honors the creators of this awesome art form and investigates the design process for each sequence.
I absolutely love this concept and I hope you guys can appreciate it as well.
I find it really interesting to look at the design of a movie poster and the design of a title sequence and see all of the similar elements and how everything works together to create the movies unique look and feel.
Here’s the title sequence for Juno and they give a really cool look at the designers thought process and the process of putting it all together.
Here’s the movie poster too. I’ve always loved this one.
Happy Tuesday, everyone!! For this week’s Alternative Movie Poster Tuesday I wanted to look at one of my favorite movies, Moonrise Kingdom. The whole design of the film is terrific and the movie has a very unique style and whimsical feel that the original poster represents perfectly. I found some awesome redesigns too!
First, here is the original and the international posters.
The 1920s brought us movie posters that featured hand-drawn illustrations rather than stills that depicted scenes of the movie and also used fairly traditional type.
Happy Tuesday, everyone!! For this week’s Alternative Movie Poster Tuesday I wanted to look at Carrie. Yes, I know it’s not Halloween anymore but this one is at least current. This film is definitely on my to-see list and I found some awesome poster redesigns.

One cool thing to look at with these posters is how blood is used and styled in each design. This one uses it splattered in the background. It shows Carrie in her prom dress and her hand is very expressive. Clearly she’s angry. This poster also includes the movie’s tagline. It’s very well balanced with the text on the left and the art on the right. I like the textured background as well. Continue reading
Movie posters are a unique type of art but it’s important to remember that they are advertisements primarily. The goal of a poster is to sell the movie—to make you want to see it. It includes the title in a bold font, images of the actors and scenes from the movie. Style, layout, colors, and fonts are essential is accurately reflecting the tone of the film. And the poster probably includes a catchy sentence that grabs your interest—the tagline.
Imagine trying to sell yourself in just one sentence. It’s tricky. This is the challenge that movie marketers face every day. It’s not at all easy to come up with a tagline that will stick with us and accurately reflect the film.
This post will look at some of the movies with the best taglines ever and their respective posters. Enjoy!

Happy Tuesday, everyone!! Just two more days until Halloween! For this week’s Alternative Movie Poster Tuesday I wanted to look at “The Nightmare Before Christmas” alternative designs. This is one of my favorite Halloween movies and I thought for this post I’d use a bit of a different format than I usually use on Tuesdays. Each of these designs use the same image of Jack’s head to represent the movie and have a lot in common so I’ll post all of the posters and talk about some of the key differences at the end of this post.

Horror movie posters serve a very similar purpose to movie trailers. They advertise the movie and provide a preview. They use the same tactic as well; they generate fear but they still leave a lot to the imagination.
With horror movies posters, poster designers make use of the movie’s most frightening images of the movies’s antagonist and they feature ghastly, often disgustingly graphic shots, of the afflicted protagonists to come up with spine chilling designs.
Happy Tuesday, everyone!! Just 8 more days until Halloween! For this week’s Alternative Movie Poster Tuesday I wanted to check out “The Shining.” The original poster designs are iconic and I found some really incredible redesigns as well.
There were a lot of designs to choose from and if you like these I suggest you check out the rest of the alternative movie posters. There’s a really great variety of styles and approaches. Here’s just three.

I enjoy a lot of aspects of this design. The color choice is great and the contrast with the ripped paper look is really cool. The text is still legible and this idea makes the poster super eye-catching. I also like the choice of stills showing Jack at his craziest. It also uses a similar font as the original poster and has a similar look as the black and yellow original design. Continue reading
