Hans Off!

Daniel Levy of NYC’s Illustraction Gallery has a nice little write-up this week on Hans Hillman, a prolific German movie poster designer who created over 130 movie posters, most famously The Maltese Falcon

International Movie Poster Friends?

I think this French version of The Killing Of A Chinese Bookie coupled with the German version of The American Friend (by Sickert) proves that even movie posters are truly universal.

Movie Posters by Sickert

We’re trying to beef up our list of German movie poster designers on the Meansheets, so I thought the art of Munich-based Hans Peter Sickert might be a nice start. During the 70’s and 80’s, he worked with everyone from Andy Warhol to Wim Wenders, and his style does indeed have a dreamy Guy Peellaert-quality, who was also a frequent Wenders collaborator.
