Since we’re in the midst of the 65th Festival de Cannes whose official poster features the legendary Marilyn Monroe, one of our favourite blogs ifitshipitshere thought it’d be nice to take a look at every single poster to date since the film festival’s inception in 1946.
See how the design and typography trends of the times are reflected in the 65 poster styles. Many were created by famous french illustrators, some by directors (such as Fellini and Kurosawa), and even one by artist Jenny Holzer. All are shown below, along with design credits, from the most recent to the very first.
