In my perusing of the Internets, I came across another (500) DAYS OF SUMMER related story that I realized we never postered posted. Hey, as they say, better late than never. No news is old news. Any publicity is good publicity. You know, things of that nature.

Back in March, /Film and Fox Searchlight ran a poll where the you of the past could vote on your favorite poster concept for (500) DAYS OF SUMMER. Obviously now, the you of the future, and a collective future us, knows which one won. But I still find it cool to see the designs that will never be. And as an added bonus, I came across a very cool fan-made poster from a person by the name of cloughlin on Flickr. Check out the 5 poster designs after the jump!

Which one is your favorite? Do you like the one that went on to be the official poster the best? Or is there another design you would have preferred over the others? I’m kind of digging the design featuring the 500 pictures of Summer in formation of a “500.”

    My quickie analysis:

    1- This one is kind of cool; cute, not the end of the world if they chose it
    2- I have a feeling they were going to use this one all along ;)
    3- My favourite as well! I can't put my tongue on exactly why.
    4- No comment…! (in a bad way)

    I also posed a high res version of the poster a while back: http://www.500days.com/official-poster-500-days-o... Nice to check out each of the 500 "Zooey heads"

    See, I really like the last one! Maybe the color scheme isn't very attractive, but I'm a fan of the design.
