The Third Man

Gaining inspiration from film noir, one of my favorite genres, I designed this Third Man poster. Deep shadows, gritty textures, mysterious looks, all provided me with great inspiration in the design process. This is another collaboration with Secret Movie Club, who presented this on the original 35mm film stock at the historic Vista Theater in Silverlake.

 I try to decide early on how to both honor the original look of the film, and transcend it.

Hand lettering is an element I love to incorporate in my work. It gives the design a sense of authenticity.

 There’s never a wasted moment in film noir, from the suspenseful storyline to the shadowed atmospheres. I wanted to apply all of the noir elements to create a rich tapestry.
