A Year of Creating Dangerously, Day 170: Here’s Looking at You

1947 Dark Passage

Bogart… Bacall… The names conjure up the style and feel of classic movies of the 1930’s and ’40’s. I love many things about the films of that time, tops of that list is the attention to design given by everyone who worked on them. Today I wanted to share a few posters of that era, each one is a movie starring Humphrey Bogart, the #1 movie icon of that age. The graphic art of these posters immediately connects with the era and often is more dramatic than the movie itself.

Here’s looking at you…
