D&AD 2015, Monotype

For this brief, I selected the films of Wes Anderson to create 4 typographic led posters advertising a retrospective filming of The Grand Budapest Hotel, Fantastic Mr Fox, and The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou. The beautifully presented pandemonium that takes place in most Wes Anderson films is represented by the chaotic and disorderedly nature of the custom hand-rendered typography, with phrases and quotes from the film interlinking and spiralling around each other. The fonts used were either used in the film of question, or representative of the said character. All the type was contained within a shape that is representative of the film, epitomising Andersons's ability to create his own unique, and completely original "worlds" in which his stories take place.

A hand-rendered typeface was initially designed utilising the colour palettes from the three films chosen.

The type surrounding the titles was created in a similar way to the custom typeface; sketched, scanned then vectorised.
