Olly Moss – film poster design genius

Olly Moss is a bit of an enigma. One thing is for certain though – he designs fuckin awesome film and gig posters. According to web tittle-tattle, Moss is British and was born in 1987. Maybe I’m just shit at finding things out, but I wasn’t helped by the bio on his website that merely lists his friends and clients.

That said his clients do indicate that I’m not alone in my admiration of this youthful artist/design-genius. Check this list for starters – Lucasfilm / Star Wars, Star Trek, Levis, Nike, Puma, Penguin, GQ, The New York Times, The Guardian, The Financial Times and The Independent. Pretty impressive, eh?

He’s sold tons of t-shirts over at Threadless too, where he’s simply described as, ‘a 24.45 year old boy’ – who has helped a whopping, ‘49 designs get printed.’

He was also commissioned by film magazine, Empire, to design his interpretations of upcoming films throughout last year. And in this month’s issue (August 2011) he reappears with a design for Rutger Hauer’s new film, ‘Hobo with a Shotgun’.

Check out Olly moss’s website here and visit his flickr page here. It’s eye-tinglingly brilliant stuff.

  1. Yeah, he does have some good designs. There’s not much of an enigma about him though – although I’m sure he’d like you to think that! I knew him v well when we were kids.

    V talented man!
