How to Create the Perfect Movie Poster [infographic]

It’s always a treat going to the movies. With prices these days ($11, unreal) – I take my time in picking the movies I just can’t wait until DVD release. When I leave I often walk slowly and check up on upcoming movie posters. Taking a mental note on something I’ll be looking forward to seeing the trailer for. Usually, what grabs my eye is something simple that you really have to look at to see what movie is. (I know, you get it – I’m a big fan of understated).

However, what are best practices for making these posters? Check out this infographic to see what works!

Minimalistic Print Ads

Print is not dead people.

As much as some people want to say it is. Nothing puts a flutter in my tummy more than seeing something done some simply yet so perfectly.

I’m a huge fan of companies that really believe in the “Less is More” approach. One of my favorite groups of ads are from Absolut Vodka. Just a few play on words and they’re brilliant.

Speaking of brilliant. Check out some of these. The Chaplin/Hitler Hat ad is my absolute favorite and I’ve had this one saved since the year it came out. However there are some really wonderful ones below. See the rest after the jump!

Rape ad taking it too far?

Drinking has usually had some sort of connection to the reasoning behind rape or accusations of rape. There have been a countless number of cases where women have had too much to drink and have been taken advantage of. This ad was pulled by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Commission.

Their reasoning is that it puts too much responsibility on the victim.

I can see why this would strike a few nerves, but what do you think?
