Chuck Palahniuk – Tell-All Posters

To promote the release of Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk’s novel Tell-All, a subversive look at the dark side of vintage Hollywood, Doubleday crowdsourced a poster design.

They requested a “movie poster, evocative of the 50s, designed to catch the eye and arouse the implacable desire to run out a buy Chuck Palahniuk’s newest outrage, TELL-ALL.” Some “apt” and “lurid” examples were included – posters for The Birds, All About Eve, Sunset Boulevard, North by Northwest, and Man Who Knew Too Much.

There were 417 entries. My designs were not selected, but I had a great time designing something for one of my favorite authors.
