I love it when graphic designers reinterpret existing movie campaigns, redesigning a poster to give the film a new vibe. On his Website, “The Art (and Random Adventures of) Eric Tan,” graphic designer Eric Tan shares many examples of movie poster re-design. Check out these examples below, and his main site for inspiration here. I love how he also provides rough sketches as well to get a glimpse into his design process.
Students in the Graphic Design/Entertainment program at FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising conquer the same task redesigning movie posters as part of their curriculum. Students studying Graphic Design/Entertainment study the components and techniques of a successful entertainment campaign using extensive research to create and develop theatrical key art for the entertainment industry. Check out some samples below of original movie posters designed by FIDM Graphic Design/Entertainment students, and visit www.fidmdigitalarts.com for many more examples of stunning student-designed movie posters.
