A Woman Under the Influence

I designed this poster for the Los Angeles 35mm screening of John Cassavete’s classic film A Woman Under the Influence, starring the stunning Gena Rowlands. I was inspired by her beyond amazing performance and the 1970s ambiance captured within the film.

I kept the title style clean and played with a font pairing that would reflect the period of the film.

 The illustrated mountain motif was inspired by the mining location Peter Falk’s character worked at as well as the layered, raw emotions of Rowland’s character.
