The best uses of black and white posters

In the world full of colours, black and white posters have seized their own share. It is sometimes unbelievable that black and white posters can have enough impact on the audience but for some types of advertising and situations, black and white posters and photography rule the media. This article throws some light on the positive aspects of black and white posters.

Introduction

Black and white posters have their own loyal audience. It is considered to be a great art to create black and white (B/W) poster photography. Although the postershops are full of coloured posters, there are many takers for B/W posters too. For some kind of situations and effects, the B/W posters are perfect. Here are some suggestions for using B/W poster photography and posters. Poster shops frequently use white and black posters to maximise their impact.

Black and white platforms

Health and safety B/W posters represent a great option to convey security and safety messages as they are for health concerns. Sometimes, using colour for serious diseases and dangerous road safety situations may seem to be too obscene. In such circumstances, the B/W posters play a great role. Same philosophy is applicable for “quit smoking” ads that look uninteresting in colour photography.
Movies Some types of movies’ posters look more effective in B/W photographic prints. The horror movies and thrillers often use B/W photography to affect its prospective audience. In fact, we are so used to B/W horror movie posters that we consider them to be football posters for the next upcoming match. If you don’t agree with the concept, check out any movie poster shop for details.
Particular kinds of art Vintage art and historic paintings of artistic importance have been drawn in black and white for many decades. Some particular kinds of expressions, including the teachings of noble men, look better in B/W posters and people spend millions of dollars buying these artefacts . Black and white pictures are more popular than a layman can imagine.
Warning signals White and black are sometimes the most preferred colours used to inform people about dangerous work conditions and the possible dangers of using a particular device. Petrol pumps and gas stations often use white and black prints to remind people to switch off mobile phones in the pumps and station’s premises. These are more effective than many colour prints.
