Text: Joker. Warner Brothers Studios.

Some elements of this text to consider:

  • This poster only has a minimal amount of text. The phrase “Put on a happy face” contrasts dramatically with the depiction of the Joker on the right side of the poster.
  • The horizontal strips allude to the different layers of the Joker’s personality. In addition, the layers as a whole give an incomplete rendition of the Joker’s face and his eyes are notably missing.
    The visual elements are clearly powerful enough for the poster to achieve its purpose.
  • Consider how different visual elements of the poster create tone.
