Get Inspired by Illustrative Movie Posters from Silver Screen Society

The movie poster is unique category of design. In one snapshot, the movie poster must capture the essence of a film, and often times stands as a lasting impression of the film in your memory. I love seeing how designers reinvent existing movie poster campaigns– especially when they use illustration, which seems to be a trend lately. If you love film posters like I do, you have to check out the  Silver Screen Society. The site is “a group of designers and friends that work toward creating art and designs honoring the many stories told through the world of cinema. The project’s roots lie in the book clubs of yore, with each month bringing a new film and cast of contributors that carry with them their own unique interpretations and ideas.” So far, the site has showcased movie posters for I Heart Huckabees, 28 Days Later, The Third Man, and the month of May is dedicated to O Brother, Where Art Thou (check out examples below).

The site is curated and organized by Adam Hanson, Brandon Schaefer, and Trevor Basset who contribute their own work to the collection (and whose portfolios are worth exploring also). Visit the full site here.
