Poster of the week...


This may seem a little cheesy, but I am going to post a film poster each week (If I remember) which has for some reason grabbed my attention.

This week... ANATOMY OF A MURDER (1959)

Designer: SAUL BASS

Saul Bass is a notable poster artist and typographer, and many of his works a highly appealing. He certainly has a unique stlye and this poster uses simple colour, shape, and typography to create an iconic piece. It appeals to me as I like its simplicty, I find it impressive how such a simple piece can be so iconic. The clashing colours, make the black of the body so clear and the jagged shapes give an edgy sense to the piece.
