The motivation of this work was the challenge to reflect the deep ironies in Guy Ritchie's work to a poster design.
After carefully analyzing the movies thoroughly, I started charcoal sketches in order to quickly create a simple and rough design emphasizing the ascendant feeling.
As a young designer, this primitive method had an important overall impact on my style.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The focus of this poster series is, not the actors and actresses nor the characteristic scenes the director is known for, but instead the source of the director's inspiration, discourses and style that he wants to emphasize in his work. As an example, the main concern for the poster of the movie Swept Away, is the a criticism regarding the gender perception instead of the actress Madonna. The focus in all other illustrations is emphasized similarly through the choice of color and style.
