Promotion - Parachute® on Saturday, March 21st, 2009

Many times in the past we have seen human figures created with typographic characters, but never before movie stars, at least as far as we know. Ad agency Africa Sao Paulo in Brazil created some very interesting posters with several Hollywood old timers we all admired and loved.  This is part of an advertising campaign for Folha de S. Paulo, a major Brazilian newspaper looking for a way to promote its Cinema Poster Collection which is included in the newspaper free every Sunday. Celebrities is always an intriguing subject for so many out there, even more so when it comes to Hollywood classic stars like Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin, Marlon Brando and James Dean, in some of their most famous poses. This is nothing short of spectacular. Typelovers enjoy it!
