The 48th Ann Arbor Film Fest

Poster@cafe

As Val mentioned in the previous post I was invited again to do the design work for this year’s Ann Arbor Film Fest. While last year’s fest had a clear theme of maps and mapping this year’s fest didn’t quite have a clear theme. At the brainstorming meeting I was shown a stack of Frank Lloyd Wright postcards and the word structure was tossed around here and there. After several drafts, the end result was a FLLW inspired collage of some hand-drawn and hand-created textures and some digitally illustrated forms. The posters I designed are currently scattered about Ann Arbor and Ypsi, the Michigan Theater is decorated with elements inspired by my design, and though not posted here there are some pretty great t-shirts I designed being worn around town. I’ll post some more refined and polished images on my portfolio site in the near future in the meantime enjoy a few pics of my work from around town.

Also, check out this really great animated version of my design by local animator Martin Thorburn, who also did a great promo spot for last year’s fest materials as well.
