Moxy Creative's 10 Movie Posters

Moxy Creative just launched designs for 10 movie posters inspired by Men's Style. Here are 4 of the 10. You can see the others (and purchase prints) here.

ok so the blue ones are playing off the imagery of all the packaging that runs through the movie which i think a cult following would get. the top one is a different concept with the air freshener that is seen in most of the cars. im somehow not doing the half tones right because i cant figure out how to change the color of them, so once i figure that out thins may change a bit

heres my poster examples from class last week

Arcade Fire Covers

Great series of album covers, good use of single color, typography, and halftones for the inside covers. See them all HERE.

edit: just noticed the inconsistent letter casing in the address. fixed.

Night of the living Dead Designs

Night of the Living Dead. Feel like somethings feel odd but I don't know for sure. wanted to add more to the last one but I still don't know yet.n Also the second one has a ground of stained coffee paper with the edges burt. Is this allowed? I only used two other colors counting the stained ground as a color.

Posters by Travis Pitts

Great posters by Travis Pitts. See more of them HERE.

Fantastic Fest Film Posters

Here are the posters I shared from Fantastic Fest. The Corman Poster, Rubber, and X, the man with the X-Ray Eyes are particularly successful and relevant to our project.

Eraserhead poster

This is what I have so far. I have a few different color combinations for each but I'm not sure which direction to go in from here. What do you guys think? -Christine

Gabe Kelley - Escape from New York poster

Color variation

The color in the background will be the paper that I print on. I used the recurring line from the film for the slogan, because the other I felt was just too long, and as it is a cult film festival, the audience will know directly what I am referencing with the quote.

Any ideas to push it further? Or anything to change completely?


The first five are text based and the last 5 are image based -- a few of the text based posters are from Paula Scher (she's the anti-Helvetica lady that was in the movie) she has others that are nice as well.
