The Secret Language of Movie Posters by Yves Peters

For the past decade, Yves Peters has examined and reviewed film posters for his ScreenFonts series. By studying their design and typeface use and mapping signature styles to film genres, he discovered that those posters use a codified language to communicate more efficiently with their intended audience. The entertaining discovery trip full of fun and surprising tidbits will help you understand and master this visual language. And you will finally learn why Trajan is the most-used font in films.


Yves Peters is a graphic designer/rock drummer/father of three tries to be critical about typography without coming across as a snob. Edited The FontFeed, now FontShop News. Talks at conferences, and identifies typefaces.
