Creative, Redesigned Movie Posters


Please Stumble this Post:



There are few design challenges more complex, interesting and creative than designing a movie poster. There are so many different angles, styles and design decisions to make that it’s incredibly difficult to start, but can be remarkably rewarding. This is especially true for designers who are used to working with constraints. If you choose to create your own unsolicited movie poster design for one of your favourite films, you won’t have a boss giving you design feedback or a client giving you a brief of how they want it to look – you have complete creative control. This is where it can be challenging – when you start with a blank canvas, you could go in absolutely any direction.

Designing a movie poster is harder than it looks – you have to sum up the feeling of the entire movie in one powerful, visceral image. Whether it recreates one particular scene, shows off one character or is simply reminiscent of the backdrop of the film, you need to make sure that the mood and feel of the film is reflected in the poster. This is much easier said than done, of course, but to help give you some inspiration we’ve brought together a collection of creative, clever and beautifully redesigned movie posters. We hope you find the collection useful for your next movie design project.

I am a Crisis, British Red Cross (Sponsored Video)

This is a sponsored post. This quick article features the excellent new ad for the British Red Cross entitled ‘I am a Crisis’:  “A crisis can happen anywhere, and to anyone. As well as helping people abroad, the British Red Cross helps more than a million people in the UK every year. Providing practical help in emergencies, short-term care in the home, and teaching life-saving first aid skills.” Check out the short video shown below…

I am a Crisis, British Red Cross

This is quite a good concept for a charity video, and you can tell that much thought has been given to get the valuable message across. That message is a rather stark, yet simple one: a crisis can hit anyone. It doesn’t matter who you are or what your social status is. It doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor─or the country you live. A crisis can reach anyone on the planet, and this advert for the British Red Cross addresses this issue.

Red cross image

Did you know? British Red Cross is a volunteer-led humanitarian organisation that helps people in crisis, no matter who or where they are, enabling vulnerable people at home and overseas to prepare and respond to emergencies in their own communities.

The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement started in 1963, after Swiss businessman Henry Dunant proposed the creation of national relief societies consisting of volunteers to provide help to those suffering in times of war. Read more over on the the British Red Cross site.
