Every time a new superhero movie comes out, we all wonder what sort of hardcore fan stunt will grab our attention this time. And sure, there is Comic-Con and the occasional custom t-shirt
. But highly involved fans go as far as creating their own content to celebrate a beloved character.
Some fans camp outside a movie theater for days before their favorite movie premieres. Others buy all official merchandise and display it proudly. And the most creative fans, use their talents to share astonishing art pieces with the rest of us.
Designers around the world have been inspired by the latest release from Marvel Studios, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Talented illustrators are spending hours in front of their tablets and computers to feel as close to their hero as possible. Superhero graphic design is usually one of the favorites, it shows creativity and unique views of iconic characters. Fans add their personal touch and feelings to their creations.
We figured it’s always better to show than tell. So get your tablet or mouse ready, because we guarantee you’ll want to share a piece of your own
after seeing these Captain America vector designs.
Captain America Illustrations - The Posters
The great thing about fan made movie posters is that each artist is able to feature the character or scene they liked the most. These 3 posters found on Behance.net are proof of it. They were all made for the same movie, yet each one has a different approach.
A great poster does more than showing a movie title. Designers have the responsibility to tell a story from a single image
, so people will feel compelled to get a ticket and watch it. And even though these are not official movie posters, illustrators have done a pretty good job creating promotional items.

Captain America Graphic Design - The Juvenile Approach
Here's a smart move to win over a younger audience. The little ones probably didn't know about Captain America until the latest Avengers movie came out. But who doesn't love a Minion? Incorporating popular trends into your designs will increase your chances of exposure.
