Posters For Cult Films We’ll Never Get To See

fro-design-company26

Los Angeles-based graphic artist Fernando Reza imagines a series of posters for films that iconic directors like Hitchcock, Lynch, and Kubrick, were unable to bring to life. Kaleidoscope for instance, would have been Alfred Hitchcock’s prequel to Shadow of a Doubt. Hitchcock had filmed silent test footage for the film, which was going to be told from the murderer’s perspective, and feature enough sex and violence that the studio ultimately persuaded him not to make it. You can actually watch test footage here.

Never Hide Films: “Stories From Those Jungle Books”

neverhidefilms-01

Yours Truly has been collaborating with a group of filmmakers and composers to produce a series of creative, music driven, narrative shorts for Ray Ban’s channel, Never Hide Films. Booooooom was tapped to oversee the film posters for the series, which was a fun job because it meant we got to work with a bunch of our friends.

The latest poster was created by one of our favourite illustrators, LA-based Hellen Jo, and follows posters we commissioned by Brecht Vandenbroucke and Andrea Wan.

“Stories From Those Jungle Books” was directed by Fan & Tom, and scored by Forest Swords, and serves as a reminder to celebrate every victory, every chance we get. Stay tuned for the full film!

Best of Kickstarter: 468 New York Subway Stations and 1 Epic Poster

SUBWAY_08SUBWAY_15SUBWAY_02

Designer Hamish Smyth and the Kickstarter expert, the one they call “The Crowdsourceress”, Alex Daly, are releasing an 11 colour limited edition poster, licensed by the MTA, printed in Italy, and only available through Kickstarter! The poster features all 468 subway stations in New York City drawn in alphabetical order.

You may recall Hamish was one of the designers behind that other wildly successful Kickstarter, the one for the Graphics Standards Manual; they’re using the same Italian printers for this poster.

Alex’s company Vann Alexandra helps projects reach their funding on Kickstarter and boasts a 100% success rate so I’m sure they’ll have no trouble funding this one. *EDIT – this project has already reached it’s funding goal in one day.

Check it out on Kickstarter.
