My Top 20 Movie Posters of 2015

 In Design, Film

2015 was a good year for movie posters. Sure, there were the usual suspects with lazy san-serif type treatments, bland, Photoshopped images, and unoriginal character posters. But there were also a lot of really unique double exposure-type posters, beautiful illustrations, and well-treated type. There are probably a lot that I missed (please feel free to point them out to me in the comments), but from what I’ve observed throughout the past twelve months, these are my favorites.
