I try to decide early on how to both honor the original look of the film, and transcend it, making it contemporary.
Hand lettering is an element I love to incorporate in my design work. It gives the overall design a sense of authenticity.
There’s never a wasted moment in film noir, whether it be in the suspenseful storyline, the rich atmospheres, the stolen glances, or the extreme framing. I wanted to apply all of those elements to inform the design, creating a rich tapestry.
