To keep my graphic design skills sharp, I've been doing some Saul Bass/Olly Moss/Constructionist-inspired movie posters.
For the True Grit one, I wanted to play up the intricacy of Jeff Bridges character. On the surface he's a disgusting, crass old man, but as we follow the story through we see he's an honorable, selfless hero. In the poster this is reflected with Bridges and Steinfeld blinded in shadow, with bridges on fire.
EDIT: Wow, didn't expect this to be so popular! I'm seeing a lot of requests for shirts, prints, etc. I'll see what I can do!
DOUBLE EDIT: For the time being, I threw together some items on (shirts, buttons, stickers) www.geeksgetit.com. I don't know that they've actually gone through yet, but feel free to take a look. I'll have to see what I can do about getting it made as prints/signs. Anyone have recommendations?
EDIT 3: Prints are available now. Click up there for more information! Since it was suggested in the comments, I cut down the web address size on a number of the other designs. There is no web address on the prints.
Based off a sign we used to have in our art room a while back, but I couldn't find anything like it again, so I'm making one for everyone's use. Keep that in mind though, I can't take FULL credit! x3
EDIT: Someone found me the original, so check IT out: [link]
Feel free to print and post everywhere. (Particularly in art/photography rooms.) I won't be making a print of this due to the fact that there's other copies of it out there, but you ARE free to click 'download' and get this printed yourself somewhere. c:
Wanted to design my own signs for the Stephen Colbert "March to Keep Fear Alive" on Oct 30. Yes, I will proudly be in attendance (and maybe even in costume).
I've made the full-size 19 x 24 inch file available for download if you plan to attend the rally and would like a sign of your own, or just want to put him up on your wall. Just click "Download image" on the right there.
