30 Examples of Creative Movie Posters

Posted in Blogging By Claire Roper

Movie posters are designed to grab our attention, and to draw us into the world of the film. They are designed to generate a feel of what to expect from a film and invite us in. Posters usually only have a limited time to influence us so the best way to pique our interest is to design a visually creative poster. Some of the more creative posters come from when the film is based on a unique concept or of a dark subject matter. However, just because the movie is a ‘chick flick’ does not mean the poster has to be just a simple, boring design as demonstrated by some of the works below.
