Design a poster series and trailer animation for Pickford Film Center’s Exhibition On Screen series.

prOJECT DETAILS

Pickford Film Center and LimeLight Cinema present Exhibition on Screen, a series of documentaries about eight famous classical artists. This project consists of:

  • Two 5.5”w x 17”h - full color posters (4 artists on each poster)

  • Two large 27”w x 40”h - full color posters

  • Eight slides/animations to present as a trailer for the series

mATERIALS GIVEN

The Pickford provided one quality image to use for each documentary, as well as some production stills.

CONCEPT

Exhibition On Screen makes an effort to take these old style classical art pieces and give them a modern presentation. The series takes the subject matter and tells the story behind each artist while also creating an exhibition that could appeal to younger audiences.

I wanted to find a way to take the classical style and give it a modern feel.

COLOR PALETTE

Somewhat neutral colors to go on a dark gray background. The muted colors allow the design elements and images of the artworks to stand out.

Design elements

I chose to go with a collage style, cropping the images and merging them with geometric forms.

POSTERS

Designing the posters was a challenge, fitting all of the information onto one page without appearing too crowded. They had to include titles, dates, and times for each documentary as well as prices and location info.

I also created a very simple set of animations for the Pickford’s trailer reel.
