Stylesight was amazed by Friday night’s grand Olympic ceremony; from Mr. Bean’s comic appearance to James Bond and Her Majesty’s epic entrance, it had it all.
Creative minds were inspired as the world witnessed a showcase of British history, music and quintessential figures. Even Stylesight began to reminisce about British fashion, designers and film stars that have remained iconic throughout the eras. It got us thinking about James Bond and we were fondly reminded of the film poster collection that highlights the famous British legacy. Vintage film posters have become a popular collectibles item and we are sure that after Friday night’s antics, the demand will be revived.
We love the compositions of these quirky, statement posters that cleverly tell the story through their graphics. The color palettes and typography also generate perfect inspiration for vintage T-shirt graphics.
To see more of the timeless posters, take a look at Tony Nourmand’s fascinating book, The Official Collection of James Bond Movie Posters. Also, the Barbican marks the 50th anniversary of the James Bond franchise with an entire exhibition highlighting the history of the renowned character. Visit barbican.org.uk to find out more.
