To celebrate another Oscar ceremony we would like to share with you a series of posters that we designed for a pre-ceremony movie viewing party. The party is held in an old movie theater that each year gets decorated with thematic posters for one evening of Oscar-related fun.
We chose to combine illustrations from famous movie posters with a few statistics about the award ceremony. We had to scratch our heads a little to come up with enough recognizable posters for movies that got at least a nomination (it surprised us, actually, that it wasn’t so easy) but in the end managed to gather a nice collection. Then we drew geometricized versions of Clark Gable, Uma Thurman and company (and had a lot of fun doing that).
(The original poster titles are at the bottom of the post, if you want to try to guess them on your own first.)
A series of posters with statistics:
The original posters in the theater.
You probably figured it out on your own, but the movies whose posters inspired us are the following: Pulp Fiction, Gone with the Wind, Cabaret, Singin’ in the Rain, High Noon, Forrest Gump, Dirty Dancing, Braveheart, The Graduate, Pretty Woman.
The project was made for Podpunkt studio.
And here is our third illustration of the Day in Life series, with yet another Victorian character as the hero.
A Day in Life series continues today with its second installment. (Here‘s the first one.)
A while ago we were asked to do something for a magazine and had a free choice of what exactly that something would be. We did a series of three illustrations, playing with famous characters.
We’re showing this one first to celebrate the return of the British show Sherlock (we spent a good part of Christmas time watching the first two seasons).
With Christmas sadly behind us (but the spirit of Christmas joy, and laziness, still lingering) today we’re sharing a few documentary photos from the process of making our Christmas card this year.
The card started as a geometric grid in Illustrator, printed out and patiently cut out by (my) hand with a vast selection of tools you can see in the .gif below (let it load). Then we folded the figures and glued elements that needed gluing.
Then came the always-joyful stage of setting the scene, which in all its documentary glory looked something like this:
And yes, Ikea bits and pieces are ever so useful for our creative purposes.
Finally, after some mysterious Photoshoppery the end was reached for all to enjoy:
We’ve been insanely busy for the last week so today we’re only showing you a sneak peek of three illustrations that happened as a last-minute request. These are fragments of stories we made up for three well-known and well-loved figures. We’ll show you the whole pieces in near(ish) future.
As you may or may not have gleaned we at re:design are huge dog lovers. As we’re not alone in that sentiment and pop culture is full of beloved dogs, our today’s poster honors them in retro 8-bit aesthetics. Can you guess which dogs made it to the poster? Well, if you can’t they’re signed in the bottom of the poster (name, source and breed).
A few close-ups (signed below):
Enlarged dogs above as follows: 04 Pluto (Disney), 07 Dogmatix (The Adventures of Asterix), 08 Beethoven (Beethoven), 12 Scooby-Doo (Scooby-Doo), 14 Dino (The Flinstones), 24 Huckleberry Hound (The Huckleberry Hound Show). The opening image is, of course, Krypto from Superman.
If you happen to like the poster, you may own it, either from Society6 (where we’re now starting) or The Bazaar. All proceeds will probably go to supporting independent font designers when we buy their fonts so, you know, a good deed there.
