We are teaching various workshops for some of the courses at Umeå Institute of Design. As a warm-up exercise we like to give out the following brief: “Design a movie poster in black and white using only a symbolic illustration and the title of the film.” The group then picks 6 movie titles of films they have all seen (this can be quite a challenge at times). Shown here are the designs of students from Advanced Design Visualisation. They worked with the following movies; 127 hours, The Matrix, Terminator, Moulin Rouge, Toy Story and Inception (click on the squares to see the full posters). This brief was inspired by the series of posters for popular tv series by Exergian.
