Graphic DesignUniversity In this University project we had to learn how to design a movie poster. We had to consider the role of imaging in a graphic design context and the task involved the conceptualisation, design and production of an original cinematic film poster.
The Brief In this fictional example our brief was to create a poster for a film that is being re released for a contemporary audience. We were given a list of 8 famous movie directors and we could choose any of them to base our poster on. Once we had chosen the director we then had to choose a movie that they had directed and then we had to create a modern day poster for the movie.
We had to use photography as the prominent piece of the design and we could not base the design on existing movie posters. Research When you first encounter a brief the first thing you should do is research. I researched the eight directors to find a style and a movie that I wanted to create a poster for.
A very short synopsis of this romantic physiological thriller is below. Johnny Aysgarth is a handsome playboy who lives by borrrowing money from his friends. Lina starts believing her husband is a murderer and she fears that she could be his next victim. I then researched into the film category which in this case was film noir.
You can see all of this in the image below. I also researched on what current movie posters looked like today and this site was a huge resource for me.
Be careful clicking on the link because it is a big load. Brainstorming After a lot of research it was now time to start brainstorming up different concepts and poster designs for the movie.
You can see some of my sketches and brainstorming below. Anyway this is a good time to get creative. I actually have written two articles on how to be creative and how to boost your creativity so you may want to check them out. Remember the key poster design points that I outlined in this poster design tips post.
A poster should be: Aesthetic — It should get attention so the message is delivered. Focused — It should focus and communicate on a single message. Ordered — The sequence should be well-ordered and obvious. You should also remember a poster is going to printed in a relatively large format so anything you do should be done using a high resolution.
Use a high resolution setting on your camera or scanner when digitising your concepts. A good starting point is at least ppi. You should also consider other factors of the poster design such as the film title, classification, leading cast, distributors, directors, producers etc.
The best way to find out what should be on a poster is by looking at other poster designs. Creation After you believe you have an idea of where you want to go then this is the time to bring it to life. Go out and take the photos you need, get the material you need and begin creating the poster.
Remember to experiment and play around with your original ideas as you can always improve on your original ideas. She fears that Johnnie now plots to poison her, and collect the money from her life insurance. It is actually quite interesting because in the original novel she knows the milk is poisoned and it was and she gulps it down knowingly however in the movie, the milk is left untouched and there is an alternate ending a car chase which leaves viewers thinking whether or not Johhny was innocent or not proving how important this glass of milk is to the central theme of the movie.
Anyway, after reading about this glowing milk I just had to incorporate it into the poster some how so I focused around this point in my brainstorming and came up with the idea of showing Johnny just about to walk up the stairs to give her the poisoned milk — I wonder what he would be thinking?
I purposely made the glass of milk very white and even gave it a slight glow. I made the actual scene black and white and grainy to depict the original black and white film noir style and to give a mysterious look. The red colour was to used to portray murder which is a constant theme throughout the movie.
Resources Used Above you can see the original shots that I used for creation of the poster, one featuring my lovely hand that was flipped for the poster and the other pic, a nice staircase. The rest was up to Photoshop. It was shot with a 7. The staircase is actually curling around like in the original movie which is another small detail that you might have picked up on?
The fonts I used were Blue Highway Condensed for the title, the oh-so-famous movie font Trajanfor the cast titles and the classic Steeltongs for the condensed type at the bottom.Writing a Design Brief A design brief is a short, precise way of explaining what you intend to design, who it will be for and what its purpose will be.
A design brief is a written explanation - given to a designer - outlining the aims, objectives and milestones of a design project.
A thorough and articulate design brief is a critical part of the design . Designers use a brief to give them guidance and focus. A brief helps define the design problem and gives details on important considerations and constraints.
