You probably know that we feature quite some poster designs on our website every week, and every Sunday we feature some movie posters. Last week I came across an interesting blogpost series made by Christophe Courtois, he made quite a collection with movie posters and put them together according to their genre. You will all see what he tried to show in one glance. Every genre has the same poster style these days. If you look at posters from 50 years back, they’re really cool and creative. If you look at nowadays posters, I think some of them are still amazing, but now that I have seen this, most of them aren’t that creative as they where before…
