There is an annual event downtown Cleveland called Cinema at the Square, where they play widely beloved classic and cult movies for only $5, in Playhouse Square. In this case, one of those movies was one of my all time favorites, the Princess Bride.
This poster was created specifically for the Cinema at the Square showing of the Princess Bride. My goal was to present to the viewer a list of the character’s names, with the typefaces that showed the characters’ personalities. Putting the names front and center creates a sense of familiarity for those who have seen the movie, and inspires intrigue for those who have not.
