Creating a 2000’s inspired romcom movie poster

Mary Holm Unique Movie Poster

The Process

I wanted to create a romcom movie poster that described a part of my life! This past summer I was a bridesmaid several times and I thought it would be fun to make something based off of that.

Inspired by 2000’s romcom movie posters, as shown below, I wanted a basic background and one subject. I took several self timer pics in a photography studio and used flash for lighting to get this picture! This is a new technique I am learning and loving. However, all of my pictures came out slightly blurry. But I had to run with it! Because of this, I tried to make the photos appear like film.

For typography, I chose contrasting calligraphy and bold fonts. This kept it interesting and beautiful to look at! This is not based off a real movie so I really could do whatever I wanted with it. Finally, I showed this to several peers and friends to receive feedback. Because of what they said, I changed the fonts up a bit. Lastly, I added my watermark and it was ready to go!  I love how this 2000’s inspired romcom poster came out!

This is one of the romcom movie posters that inspired me. From this poster, I took the idea of flowers, simple dresses, and a simple background.
