Typography Movie Posters

These are a few selected movie posters that I am drawn to. Th style is quite interesting and I like the simplistic feel to them.

Typography Project 2

With this project we were to take two different letter forms and combine them in a letter form. When I did this it was very hard to start with. The letters I ended up picking were & and S. I did this because I felt they followed together very nicely. When placing them on the side it almost seemed like a creature of some sorts. Then we were told to crop an area within the figure. I feel that my image zoom in was far more better than the original pair. We also changed the colors to complement each other.

Typography Project 4

We dare not tempt them with weakness. For only when our arms are sufficient beyond doubt can we be certain beyond doubt that they will never be employed.

So let us begin anew—remembering on both sides that civility is not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always subject to proof. Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate.

 

This speech was done by John F. Kennedy. It was his inaugural speech. It took this type and created a poster out of it that was engaging. My goal of this type was to make it seem like builds or plants since the first part of the speech is about beginning anew. The blue was used to make a sky feel about it that completed the idea of the growing form.

Typography Project 1

For this project we were able to pick out a word of our choice and place it somewhere within the environment. I chose the word ‘LUST’ for my word and placed it in a privet location. When I first began I thought of placing it on a body for the most common idea of lust. But after thinking it over I choice to place the letter on flowers on a bed. The bed is for the most common reason, since that is where must lustful things happen. But i choice the flowers for a not so common reason. When people think of white flowers, most commonly roses, they think of purity. So here are four pure white roses with a word like lust placed on them. It causes the viewer to have to think of why such flowers are branded as such. I believe that sometimes the more pure a being tries to be the more tainted they really are. I had arranged the flowers in many different ways but this flat way was the most pleasing. It seems to give the image of laying flat, which could be a lustful postition in certen peoples veiw. Thoe it is hard to tell the flowers are laying on a red silk sheet. Red seems to be the truest color of passion that one can find. And silk is the most pleasent fabric to touch most of the time. So red silk show the true meaning of lust under the false white roses.
