JEAN-LUC GODARD movie posters by HANS HILLMANN - Tribute to HANS HILLMANN (1925-2014 RIP) (Part 1)

The recent passing of the world’s most creative movie poster designer, HANS HILLMANN prompted me to revisited his gigantic and influential oeuvre (over 150 posters created between 1955 and the late 70’s before he went back to teaching graphic design at the prestigious Kassel School of High Arts in Germany)

You will find some of his best work in the 10 parts of this blog split between the various posters created for Nouvelle Vague, French, British and Brazilian Cinema along his exclusive works for some of the most famous movie directors who insisted by contract to have him design their German movie posters.

Jean-Luc Godard is one of those directors who gave Hillmann carte blanche to create some of the most visually arresting and challenging movie posters. here are 7 of them created between 1967 and 1972

Vivre sa vie (Live Your Life) (R1970-1952) starring Anna Karina and Saddy Rebot

Masculin Feminin (1967) starring Jean-Pierre Leaud and Chantal Goya

Une femme est une femme (A Woman Is A Woman) (R1970-1961) starring Jean-Paul Belmondo, Jean-Claude Brialy and Anna Karina 

Weekend (1969) starring Mireille Darc and Jean Yanne

La chinoise (The Chinese Girl) (1967) starring Jean-Pierre Leaud and Anne Wiazemski

2 ou 3 choses que je sais d’elle (1967) starring Marina Vlady

A bout de souffle (Breathless) (R1972-1959) starring Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg
