What a delightful visual treat this 100 Years of Paramount Pictures poster is: celebrating Paramount's 100th Anniversary in glorious technicoloured icons.
Designed by L.A.’s Gallery 1988.
The poster consists of sweet sweet icons that represent Paramount's biggest movie releases, so the challenge is to see how many films you can name from those delicious icons.
Would love to know more about the creative process behind this, and how long it took as well, as an idea on how many ideas for each movie icon were tossed around.

I have a heap of cool links and things to blog about, but this Toy Stories—A Movie Poster Experiment by Jim Tuckwell has been eying me up for about a week now in my FireFox tab.
Time to let it rip.
I am almost lost for words on how best to sum these up. I keep looking at the imagery and just feel these are bloody awesome posters.
The Playtoon one really captures the desperation of war fare, yet you know these are just green toy soldiers. You know that Light Buzz year is just a plastic toy yet you really can feel that sense of deep space, awe and fear in Buzz's face.
Obviously the history of these movies is pretty intense as well as the amazing Toy Story characters being so familiar with us all, but I do feel these posters by Jim are really rather brilliant.
Dear Jim, please do some more.
Fauxgo is a fun faux/fake/fictional logo Tumblr project by Tymn Armstrong.
Taking fictional movie companies like: Tron-Encom, The Karate Kid-Kobra Kid, WALL•E-Buy N Large and others, Tymn has showcased the fictional/fake logos that represent these companies.
The whole idea of a fake logo makes me smirk somewhat. Found via Quipsologies.
