Black Swan is a psychological thriller released on December 1, 2010 featuring Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis and Vincent Cassel. Focused around a New York City production of Swan Lake, the relatively dark and moody Black Swan plot resulted in high praise from critics for the film.
Although I won’t provide a full Black Swan movie explanation here (to avoid spoiling for anyone), the graphic designs from the Black Swan movie posters caught my eye, because they combine some interesting effects from popular Photoshop tutorials around the web.
First, the vector styled designs remind me a bit of the Broadway play ‘Wicked’ (which was a precursor story to the Wizard of Oz), along with almost a horror style with the vivid colors.
Following that, the black feather depth of field effect in several of the Black Swan posters caught my eye, followed lastly by the posters involving heavy makeup and alteration of the photograph similar to a few of the tutorials from Design.CreativeFan.
So, check out these movie posters, even if you aren’t planning on seeing the film, because they offer some great design inspiration.
If you have a movie you want to see us find some posters for, let us know in the comments. Also, have you seen Black Swan? If so, tell us what you thought in the comments (avoid spoilers please).
