A photographer hired us to design a logo for her new business. She explained the company name, The Best Nest Portraits was based off of one of her favorite books by Dr. Seuss. Being a Seuss fan myself, I thought it was fitting to come up with a look to match it.
Our latest commissioned piece of the film Spring Breakers. We were contacted by someone interested in having a poster created for a dear friend. People are so thoughtful. We hope she enjoys the gift as much as we enjoyed working on it.
The client and I discussed using a jazzy / noir look with neon colors. The one portion of the film that really stood out to me was the piano scene. I thought it was beautiful and romantic with a bit of an edge. I wanted to tell this story in the final design.
Sketches and Comps
We're excited to showcase our latest poster design for the upcoming short film INSOMA, premiering at the 2014 St Albans Film Festival this May.
Sketch Evolution of the Poster Design
Initial roughs. The producer and I discussed a concept with buildings creeping over our main character. Light outlined sketch on the left. Added details and shading on the right. I really liked this concept, but felt it was getting a bit complex for the type of look we were going for.
The second comp utilizing a Saul Bass look from his Vertigo Poster. Third comp using a large, repeating type treatment with the falling man.
The final design starting to take shape. We used the same type treatment from the film's title sequence. Then adding the falling man and rings around the character's profile.
