Celebrating Graphic Designer Bill Gold...

This year, prolific graphic designer Bill Gold would have been 99 years old. In a career spanning seventy years this flamboyant artist produced designs and illustrations for thousands of movie posters. 

We will cover his work in more detail in a later blog post, but, as today marks the third anniversary of his passing, here are a few of our favourite Bill Gold designed posters and a wonderful short film from CBS.

 

The movie poster for the film Dirty Harry designed by Bill Gold The movie poster for the film Unforgiven designed by Bill Gold The movie poster for the film Cool Hand Luke designed by Bill Gold 

 

The movie poster for the film Bird designed by Bill Gold

 

The movie poster for My Fair Lady designed by Bill Gold 

 

The movie poster for The Exorcist designed by Bill Gold

 

This short film from CBS Sunday Morning aired in March 2018, just a couple of months before Gold's passing. (You may need to skip an advert or two.) 

 

 

 

Such an astonishing career. We will cover more of it in future blog posts.
