  • Movie poster project

    I am doing a project at uni where we have to redesign posters for 3 different movies, I'm doing Memento, Vertigo and Fargo.... here is the Memento one...



    What do you think?

    I will also post Vertigo and Fargo when they are done.

    (Just realised all the films end in 'o' - coincidence...)

    VERY nice. Can't wait to see the rest, esp. Fargo "OH yeah sure, you betcha"

      looks great! the only thing that bothers me is the bottom text, it's really difficult to read it appears all the letters run together. Might be too light on the white background. just a thought.

        It looks good, my suggestions:

        1) The title font seems to be laying on top of the paper slip. If you photographed it, re-shoot with the title on the slip of paper and crumpled, right now the type seems to perfect on top of crumpled paper.

        2) The physical size of the supporting cast/production crew is bigger than the stars of the film. Maybe try finding a new way to either display the cast, or the crew.

          thats weird, cos i DID write the 'memento' on the paper before i photographed it! but you're right it does look as if its layed on top afterwards - but i promise you it isnt! lol

          will work on the cast/crew text too thanks

            It's probably because the photo is so contrasty. There's no tonal range on the letters to indicate unevenness and it's such a saturated black that it stands out like it's just been dropped on top. I suppose the directly overhead view is also negating some of the odd angles you would expect to see.

                  I'm from the midwest myself but now live in North Carolina - have for over 20 years. Whenever I see "Fargo" I start talking like that again. lol

                  I agree...I like the other two posters best. WHERE'S THE SNOW? On the TV screen?

                      How about the type in blood dripping on the snow? That one part with the woodchipper was really gross!

                          I wouldn't say it means nothing. If it's coupled with all the other things, like internships, actual employment and education, it definitely counts for something.

                          Looks like I'm going to be the oddball here and say that I rarely need any math beyond basic arithmetic to do my job. The most math-intensive, graphic design thing I run into is figuring percentages,...

                          Ah perhaps fetch is a better term: there is a progress bar at the bottom and it says Dowloading ## of ##### (and since I'm an email hoarder, the of # is around 25,000). My concern is when I used Outlook...

                          Unless there is something you're not telling, I'd say Outlook isn't necessarily "backing up" your gmail account, but rather something more like "fetching" it. And, I don't think it...
