There are many design blogs and a lot that focus just on typography with many of them trying to track the latest trends in typography. One of the interesting approaches I’ve seen is the practice of studying trends in movie poster design. Movies regularly must draw audiences to them with static poster and web design. The fonts chosen are important parts of branding the film and communicating to viewers the movie that they can expect to see. Here a few recent movie posters and some links to sites engaged in this practice of movie poster analysis.
