Death Sentence Poster

Have I mentioned that I dislike these types of posters where some huge text takes most of the space? I guess I have. Well, this one is no different.

Posters are really better at showing than at telling. Sure, a well placed tagline can do wonders, but those mostly work when there is already something interesting in the image to grab your attention. In the case of this poster I had too look at it several times before my brain actually registered what the text was saying. And even then, it didn’t make much of an impact.

Overall, not a very effective poster.
