Alternative movie posters are fun side projects designers and illustrators enjoy working on to show off their own take on the promo art for a popular film. There’s a huge number of examples of discover in portfolios around the web that feature a range of movies across all genres and years. For today’s showcase I’ve picked out 25 reimagined poster designs for your (okay… my) favourite 80s classics. Each one is redesigned in a unique style that beautifully represents the characters, scenes and memorable moments of the movie.

  1. Great stuff! Any tips on producing something like these? Obviously, some are hand traced (Predator, etc) as they match the original posters very closely. I wonder if any use Illustrator’s Live Trace tool as a starting point?
