Poster Design: Metropolis 90th Anniversary

Ad

La Boca created a beautiful poster design to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Fritz Lang sci-fi classic, Metropolis. It was screen printed in 4 colour variations using a combination of metallic inks and mirrored papers to create the same art deco look. The result as I mentioned in the beginning is quite stunning. I particularly love the colors as well as the textures. So check it out after the break.

This influential German science-fiction film presents a highly stylized futuristic city where a beautiful and cultured utopia exists above a bleak underworld populated by mistreated workers. When the privileged youth Freder (Gustav Fröhlich) discovers the grim scene under the city, he becomes intent on helping the workers. He befriends the rebellious teacher Maria (Brigitte Helm), but this puts him at odds with his authoritative father, leading to greater conflict.
