To aid in the creation of your posters for the Battle Royale Re-Covered Film Poster contest, I though it would be cool to highlight someone who could be potentially be inspirational. He’s a Los Angeles based artist who goes by the name Midnight Marauder, a prolific creator of self-initiated posters and box art for movies.
His work often centers around creating Criterion-esque covers for films he enjoys, designing pieces that are beautiful and eye-catching. He has an impeccable way of combining imagery from the film with bold type to make covers that you actually wish existed. The cover for Looper, which you can see below, is a perfect example of this. It’s the combination of imagery that tells a captivating story that draws you in. You want to know what all those little vignettes mean and how they add up to a cohesive story. Hopefully you’ll find these inspirational as I have!
