Coming to a theater near you! My poster design for the Janus Films release of the great Harold Lloyd's Safety Last! Not coincidentally based on my cover artwork for The Criterion Collection's release (in June) of the very same. It's a PACKED disc lots of fun and illumninating extras, plus some Llyod shorts which I believe have never before been available for home video. It's a good one.
A while back The Criterion Collection asked me to contribute some title treatment designs for their release of Charlie Chaplin'sThe Gold Rush. I had a lot of fun coming up with a bunch, inspired by woodtype posters of the great California gold rush of 1849. The creative direction changed a bit and none were used. It happens. This title treatment solution was a particular favorite.
The American Institute of Graphic Arts --posted a behind-the-scenes article about The Criterion Collection, detailing the creative process for The Man Who Knew Too Much . It's a terrific glimpse of the Criterion process from initial editiorial deliberations, on to the conception and completion of a cover. It's an honor to be included. Check it out!
Happy New Year already! Come January 2013 The Criterion Collection will release the original 1934 version of Alfred Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much. They kindly asked me to design the title treatment for the cover as well as the creating the menu and package design. I'm looking forward to showing off all that when the time comes so please stay tuned. As for the excellent cover illustration, it's by Bill Nelson --beautifully done, right?
