The two posters from last year’s Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married surprised me. The teaser because of it’s visual design and the main poster for what I thought was a very refreshing and effective lack of cynicism. Well, it’s another year, which apparently means another Tyler Perry movie and another surprising poster, this time because of the bold sparseness.

The poster has just two elements. The first is an overstuffed bag which also serves as the canvas for the title and credits. The bag is placed on one of the corners instead of taking the center of the image. Diagonally from it we have the tagline occupying the other corner, and in between a lot of white space.

The lack of elements and their positioning gives the poster a design that, if not unique, is at least different enough to call attention to itself. And I think there is a certain beauty to the cleanness of the whole image.

Besides that, the bag combined with the tagline do a great job of conveying succinctly the basic storyline and some of the main themes of the movie: someone traveling and the chance for growth and to leave the past behind that that trip offers.

This is just a teaser poster, which means that we should have another poster down the road that will make it more clear that this is a Tyler Perry movie and that will highlight the actors involved. This, combined with the strength of the Tyler Perry brand allows the poster designers to be bolder. But even considering that, the choices made here surprise and please me. I can only hope that Tyler Perry’s movie’s keep getting posters as good as the last few have been.

    I’ve said that least 2438296 times. The problem this like that is they are just too compilcated for the average bird, if you know what I mean

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
