Movie posters at once attract our attention with their pictures and text. Look at posters announcing a thriller, and the design tells you what sort of movie it could be like. The font chosen for the movie poster can go a long way to create the first impression about the movie. The way the letters are shaped, arranged, and patterned, can draw you into wanting to know more about a movie. The credits line for a movie also has cool and interesting fonts.
The aim for a movie poster is to be seen from a distance so the font is chosen to be easily readable. You usually find tall and elegant letters with enough space in-between, or condensed lettering that has a dramatic appeal.
Serif fonts are used a lot for Movie Poster Font as they have a sense of great style.
Often fonts play with the shapes of letters, or have interesting patterns like snowdrops, inkdrop effects, or thin horizontal stripes inside the letters. Many fonts go for soft rounded corners and large shapes that give them a fun feel. Jagged edges of letters with uneven strokes may build up the thrilling and mysterious mood for a thriller movie poster. You also find that some posters use plenty of geometrical shapes such as circles and squares to make stylized fonts. Often the way the letters are arranged may give a dancing feel to the word. Sometimes fonts have a playful effect in which the letters seem to bob up and down the surface, or the letters may be alternately black or white for a bold dramatic look. Check out these interesting fonts for movie posters.
