To celebrate another Oscar ceremony we would like to share with you a series of posters that we designed for a pre-ceremony movie viewing party. The party is held in an old movie theater that each year gets decorated with thematic posters for one evening of Oscar-related fun.
We chose to combine illustrations from famous movie posters with a few statistics about the award ceremony. We had to scratch our heads a little to come up with enough recognizable posters for movies that got at least a nomination (it surprised us, actually, that it wasn’t so easy) but in the end managed to gather a nice collection. Then we drew geometricized versions of Clark Gable, Uma Thurman and company (and had a lot of fun doing that).
(The original poster titles are at the bottom of the post, if you want to try to guess them on your own first.)
You probably figured it out on your own, but the movies whose posters inspired us are the following: Pulp Fiction, Gone with the Wind, Cabaret, Singin’ in the Rain, High Noon, Forrest Gump, Dirty Dancing, Braveheart, The Graduate, Pretty Woman.
The project was made for Podpunkt studio.
