“Design is thinking made visual.” — Bill Gold
Bill Gold has been designing film posters for over 70 years and, together, his work includes the promotional campaigns for some of the most important American films since the 1940s. Gold’s posters are each designed to give their films a unique identity and, over the span of his long career, Gold’s work has reflected a wide range of trends, tastes, and approaches. In 2011, Gold came out of retirement to design the poster for Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar.
Gold has designed hundreds of posters. Below is just a sampling of his prolific career.
