I just love when I get the chance to be creative and design something new. It’s a ton of fun and can really get the creative half of the brain working. This week, I decided to take this creativity along with my love for movies and design an awesome and creative movie poster. I really liked some of the examples that I saw at and tried out some designs myself. In the end, I came up with a minimal yet creative movie poster for a movie that I titled Luminescence.

The process of putting together a creative movie poster went pretty quickly. I first wanted to find a movie poster that I thought would be fun to recreate, but I ended up not finding one that I liked. Instead, I decided to be a little more creative and make my own. I started by taking a quick self-portrait. I didn’t have any professional lighting equipment with me, so I had to be a little more creative with it. I ended up just standing next to a window where my face would be more visible to the camera. Once I had the setup that I wanted, I took a few shots until I got an image that I liked.

Once I got a good self-portrait, I took it into Adobe Photoshop and Procreate to add in more creative content to make it look more like a movie poster. I enhanced the lighting slightly and added a few graphics to make it more interesting.

I didn’t want the movie poster to look too busy, so I did my best to keep it minimalistic. One way that I did this was by using a sans-serif typeface. This matched the graphics and tied into the design that I was going for. After all my efforts, I ended up with this Luminescence creative movie poster. I am super happy with how it turned out. This was a really fun way to be a little more creative, and I’d recommend trying it out for yourself and seeing what you can come up with.
