As you probably already have noticed there is no motion graphics post today, like we usually have on Wednesdays. Instead we have a new set with alternative movie posters in store for you. Last week we featured posters from ‘The Shining’ and today we are presenting another classic horror movie from one of the true masters – Alfred Hitchcock. And the movie is his 60’s masterpiece ‘The Birds’.

It is often said that 3 in 4 consumer buying decisions are made at the point of purchase. That is why it is crucial for product packaging to have maximum shelf presence. Great packaging should capture the shopper’s attention and give them enough information to close the sale. An effective package design should also build brand awareness and customer satisfaction in the purchase decision they make. In this packaging gallery, we present the latest of our findings from the wonderful world of packaging design.

A while back we published a gallery with nicely designed movie posters, most of which where unofficial and made by fans. While going though our poster collection I noticed that some movies where more popular than others. So I decided to feature these movies with a post of their own. And first out is a 34-year old masterpiece by Stephen King and Stanley Kubrick – The Shining!
