work in progress

here is some work in progress for my poster.
i'm still work on hand lettering.
i was wondering if i was heading in a good direction?


  1. Which film are you doing again?
    I think the imagery is successful without knowing the film.
    The only thing, which might be a personal preference, is that the text feels so separated from the page itself. And I feel like there might be a different font out there for the information, but maybe when I know the film it will make more sense as the choice.

  2. thanks, gabe.
    and i'm doing heathers, btws.

  3. This is an interesting direction. Typographically, it doesn't feel as resolved as your imagery concept. I'd explore different ways to integrate the typography.

    Also, where's the film title? This is important, and will help ground your solution.

    Explore the relationships between the different elements using scale, and see if you can really push your composition.

  4. The imagery is definitely engaging. I'd like to see the type for the movie title integrated into the design somehow. Maybe it's a matter of making the feet/wooden mallet larger and more domineering and the text could wrap around the image or maybe even fill the croquet ball? The "floating head" is a bit confusing (is it supposed to read as actually on the lawn?). Conceptually, I like how you're making the preppy, fun sport dark and grim.
