One Letter Off

No Country for Old Hen parody movie poster Photoshop Contest posted their latest movie poster theme Photoshop contest, known as One Letter Off. Billed as “Not quite the movies you know”, the contest rules are fairly simple, but set the stage for some really creative results:

It’s not easy being a professional graphic designer. Often they’re asked to create a movie poster with nothing more to go on than the title. And if the email has a typo in it, things get even more confusing. All it takes is one wrong letter to really foul things up. You should have seen the posters they first designed for “Snakes on a Plate”, “A Fight at the Opera”, and “Mobster House”! (We won’t discuss the original poster for “Tucker”… )

The rules of this contest are thus: take a popular movie and swap one and only one letter of its title OR add or subtract one and only one letter of its title. (Change multiple letters, or add or subtract multiple letters, or add/subtract a letter and change another as well and your entry will be disqualified.) Then design the poster for the new movie that results.

The “One Letter Off” movie poster contest is not a new idea (this is the fourth in the series), or even limited to one web site, as readers of the Something Awful forums will tell you.
