Faux Poster Font Experiment

I’m going to try something new with upcoming typeface releases: overdramatic fake movie posters. So I set out to make a simple design and realized that if you keep it vague enough (minimal, too) you can simply swap out the “title” with a different typeface and have a usable finished product. Is it generic? Yeah, but that’s kind of the point, letting typography set a different tone without changing anything else in the design.


Not horrible, but not groundbreaking either. All of those fonts are available to purchase in my shop (and the most expensive one is $25, so there’s that). Here’s an animated version of 10 of those from above.


And another fake poster. Luckily I’ve taken some fun photos over the years to use.


You can test all of these fonts right on my home page (and the bottom of each product page): tylerfinck.com
