This was brought to my attention a few weeks after designing the Commodore 64 piece, and the completely unintentional resemblance my piece has to the first Star Trek movie poster. Not being a huge Star Trek, I don’t remember ever seeing this poster anywhere previously but the similarities in style are undeniable.
The poster was created by Bob Peak, whose movie poster portfolio is incredible.
Since then, a friend brought over the dvd for a viewing and the movie is ripe with 70s computer special effects goodness. They were obviously not going for something realistic, but more taking liberties on designing the effects to look stylized and unique. Very 2001: A Space Odyssey style of 70s psychedelia. It’s well worth a watch for those who like that kind of thing.
