Mike Davidson has just announced the final Mike Industries iPod Creativity Competition: Design a Steve Jobs Movie Poster. I’ve posted the following three entries…I’m up against some terrific competition, so fingers crossed!
My first go. I had originally thought of remaking the ‘Saw 2’ poster by exchanging fingers for pods, but as I was looking for source material I came across the ‘Silence of the Lambs’ poster. Somehow that got me thinking of Podcasts – and the rest was history!
During my research for the Saw 2 poster I also found an article about movie posters using two fingers to indicate a sequel. Among the posters listed was the Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle poster…mmmm. Looking at that poster, my mind naturally pondered how easy it’d be to fit in a Nano into Cameron Diaz’ hand. Thus “Steve’s Angels” was born.
Saul Bass’ Anatomy of a Murder poster + Ipod’s ad campaign. I’ll say no more except that if you look closely, you’ll see some nice details! (Isn’t as good as the iZombie though.)

The first one looks like Ashton Kucher (however you spell it), still pretty good.
The second one is the best one, I think, but the lowercase “t” kinda throws me off.
Everything about Apple is straight edges and rounded corners, so I don’t know where you got inspiration from a jagged-edged poster, even if it is from Saul Bass.
Just my 2 pennies.
You’re quite right Pat – the t is dead wrong…funny how I overlooked that.
And about the jagged edges: I decided to make the poster resemble the original as close as possible, and jagged edges are an essential part of the design.
Lastly – I’m sure Ashton has a much slimmer face! It’d kinda hidden here, but Steve’s face is really, really broad.
