Woody Allen’s Approach To Movie Posters

Typography takes a more prominent role, with actor names highlighted more than what you’d find in your typical film poster, while the imagery used is often simple, with a single still photograph highlighting a mood or through a graphic symbol that brand’s a film’s identity. Lavishness is underplayed, with the few visual flourishes mostly being afforded to the film’s title.

While I have never watch Woody Allen’s movie before, I like the quiet and understated taste on the film posters. Browsing through, it gave me this uh-huh moment. So consistent were those posters that I could immediately recognize they are his works.

  • Typography is the building element for the look
