Muppet Posters: Update #3

Jan 2012 Update: Posters are now sold out.

Nov. 2011 Original Post: As I mentioned on Twitter, there were some minor tweaks to the poster designs. Overall, I’m very pleased with the end result: bright, bold and simple. You can see the original posters here. The new changes included:

  1. New size
    Traditional poster size of 18″ x 24″ to make sure  it would fit in a standard size frame.
  2. Removal of page folds and ‘offset inks’
    This was a mutual decision. The inconsistent white spaces have been fixed.
  3. Date change
    Wednesday, March 19th, 1975 is the original air date of the Muppets pilot as well as the first time we are introduced to the Electric Mayhem. (August 17th, 1981 was my birthday)
  4. Animals face
    His eyes were too far apart and his nose was too big. What was I thinking? He looked cross eyed!
  5. Bolder colours
    Colour palette is stronger and more consistent.
  6. Cleaner lines
    The lines are cleaner and more crisp.
