From Russia With Love

Sean Connery as Bond = complete design inspiration. I love the period these films were made. I love the style of the costumes. I love the Technicolor palette. Everything about these early Bond movies sing. I designed this poster based on the 1963 Bond classic From Russia with Love for Secret Movie Club, who presented this on the original 35mm film stock at the historic Vista Theater in Silverlake.

 I wanted to give this poster a vintage feel, starting with older paper stock and building the design elements with halftone patterns and stamped, distressed qualities.

The challenge in designing a Bond poster is to transcend the original iconic looks.

 For the title design, I wanted to combine a font that had a classic feel, and played off the Russian theme, but combine it with a modern script. I made the “o” in “Love” resemble a gun’s site scope.
