The year is over, so naturally it is time for a retrospective on the Poster Round Up. It took some time, but gathered together are the 10 posters that stood out among the rest. Enjoy.
The title alone is great, but add in the fun scribbled illustration and you’ve got yourself a fun and irreverent poster.
The dark psychedelia is unsettling, a really great design.
8. And Everything is Going Fine
Carefree and light as a feather, the stark look, and sharp contrast of the black and white is great.
It calls to mind much of the iconic art from Hitchcock’s Vertigo. It’s a little uneven and dizzying.
The way the colors jump off of this poster is beautiful, and the delicate emotion of the actor’s faces is lovely.
Beautiful iconography, such a perfect new wave design, and it helps that I love Jean Seberg.
4. Red State
This poster is so haunting and creepy. It is the stuff nightmares are made out of.
3. Don’t Be Afraid of The Dark
The illustration is meticulously detailed, from the grain of the wood doors, to the folds of the girls dress. I am a sucker for illustrated/hand drawn posters, and this was the best of the year.
2. Stonewall Uprising
The visceral emotion this poster puts forth is perfect. You can almost feel the anger.
1. Smash His Camera
This poster is absolutely perfect. It has the candid shot of the iconic Jackie Kennedy Onassis (and really, that’s all it needed) coupled with the minimalist design of the title. It is a breath of fresh air.
