Richard Amsel was an American illustrator and graphic designer. His career was brief but prolific, including movie posters, album covers, and magazine covers. Amsel's style is a combination of pulpishness (strong outlines) and the swirling curves of art nouveau.
Richard used a lot of hand rendered techniques for his posters using materials such as gouache which is a type of paint consisting of pigment and a binding agent, coloured pencils, acrylic on board.
The designs of Richard Amsel are very intricate, bold and represent a art nouveau esk style. The films he designed for in his career were between the late 60's to early 70's are his designs depict this type of era.
