I hope to make Designing Film a recurring feature, with posts in this category highlighting the intersection between my two worlds: film and design. For this inaugural post I’d like to direct your attention to Not a Movie Poster, a frequently updated photoblog featuring film posters which for whatever reason were not chosen as the final design. To paraphrase the title of one of the films featured, the designs mostly fall into three categories: the good, the bad, the weird. But some go well beyond good, and are a great deal better than what was actually used for a film’s marketing campaign. Just compare the unused poster above, for Anton Corbijn’s Ian Curtis biopic Control, with the rather boring, let’s-pretend-he’s-James-Dean version that served as the film’s one-sheet.
