Meanwhile, film posters

Breaking from the usual business of sharing inspirational art and design that I’ve stumbled upon in the course of my work and absolutely need to put in front someone, this week’s Meanwhile is a little showcase of posters I’ve designed for my own entertainment over the last year. I naively started these thinking “well a rectangle’s a rectangle, they’re basically book covers”, but it’s completely topsy-turvy; the text you’re working from is already visual, so you’re in a different position as interpreter. It’s pushed me into new and unexpected areas of craft and consideration. One particular highlight: learning how to colourise black and white photographs for the Ripley and Swan posters (original pics by Leigh Wiener and Brigitte Lacombe); a wonderfully meditative (and addictive) exercise. For more of these and other rectangles, check out my freshly refreshed website.
