Amy’s Ten Highlights of 2010 Movie Posters
The poster sets by David Lam and Melissa Ferrara of this documentary profiling a cancer survivor, a blind senior citizen, and twin sisters as they compete in marathons, triathlons, and other competitions to redefine what it means to be an “athlete” are striking.
The black and white photographs with really high contrast make for powerful imagery for the posters. Plus, we never get “character posters” in documentaries, right? That’s awesome they did these for Athlete.
5. The Art of the Steal
The Art of the Steal is a documentary that talks about a very shady money grabbing protecting the arts business, which the poster conveys really well by having this shadow made out of newspaper clippings hiding the art. Textures, simple typography, composition, and a muted yet “colorful” palette… all put together by Kellerhouse, Inc. Very recommended view for those especially involved in the arts. xD
4. You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger
The Spanish poster version of You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, done by Ignition Print — appearing on the list again — works better than any of the posters used to promote that film. Its simplicity doesn’t mean it’s boring. On the contrary, I feel the literal “tall dark stranger” is mysterious and the woman wrapping her arms around this figure is actually… quite sexy? xD That poster is even better than the movie, ha!
