& God Created Woman

I created this movie poster based on the 1956 French film, And God Created Woman, starring Brigitte Bardot. I wanted to capture the femininity of Bardot through the color palette and play with some handmade lettering for the title.

Sometimes all you need for inspiration is a really strong image. This simple still of Bardot, I took from screen captures, really captured the look I was going for, strong and feminine.

 I used my paintbrushes to create the title lettering for the poster. Whenever possible I try to exercise my art muscles. Picking up pens and brushes relaxes the impulse to control every element that comes from design work. There’s beauty in the imperfections of handmade work.

As the critics of the time put it, “Bardot moves herself in a fashion that fully accentuates her charms…she is undeniably a creation of superlative craftsmanship.”
