Alternative Film Posters

40+ Creatives were given the task of creating their own interpretation of a Cult, Classic or Obscure film poster from the past, whether it be a literal or abstract solution. The result is Now Showing, an Art exhibition paying homage to more than 70 years of film, through the form of Prints, One Off Screen Prints and Sculptures.

Some great stuff in here; If I had one piece of advice for young designers it would be to take on projects like this every chance you get, paid or not (preferably not). It allows for total creative freedom within a preexisting context that most likely has some sort of personal meaning for you. It really is a big challenge sometimes to have freedom like this. Link

These are great. I’m particularly fascinated with the illustrated pieces. Slightly reminiscent of an older style movie poster you don’t see very often any more. Thanks for posting!
