Movie posters are a popular and important branch of poster design. On the Web we can find lists of best contemporary posters as well as pages with older, classic posters. And finally, from time to time, we find series of alternative designs that people have created for their favourite films. In the past we’ve shown you some of these projects on our site and we’re always on the hunt for new and exciting examples to share with you.
Our latest movie poster discovery is Plakiat – series of alternate movie posters created by Maks Bereski. For him posters are a form of visual stories about movies watched by him, and good excuse to talk about cinema. His collection grows constantly, as new movies appear on the screen. You can check complete poster series on Plakiat Facebook page and on his blog.
Why do you think creating of alternate movie posters is becoming more and more popular? Is it a kind of visual commentary for the movie created by poster designers? Or maybe some longing for minimal / old fashion / artistic movie posters, in opposition to the contemporary movie posters we see on the streets? Let us know what you think in comment below!
