Poster of the week...

This Week: CASABLANCA (1942)

Designer: Bill Gold

I chose this piece because it's a great piece of artwork, a intricate sketch depicting the range of characters in the film. The image has a great sense of noir about it with the shadowy atmosphere it creates. I love the typography at the top of the poster: big bold surnames, and flowing first. The title is also a great typeface, stylistic of the era, the bright red, striking and bold in front of the sketches. The collection of images not only present the star power attraction, but also give hint towards the narrative of the film.
