Neon Movie Posters

Neon signs are wonderful aren’t they? At the height of its popularity in the 40s, neon was used in marquees for many movie theatres, bars, and shops. It seems this type of signage has lost favour in recent times, but MrWhaite is bringing sexy back, albeit in GIF format. The UK designer creates animated neon posters for some classic movies. See his creations after the jump.

Update: MrWhaite recently completed the animated neon posters for the original trilogy of Star Wars films.

We had a chat with MrWhaite on Twitter and it appears that “Jaws” may be the next movie to get a retro neon poster. More are soon to pop up, so keep an eye on MrWhaite’s tumblelog.
