For Cell Count I wanted to crate a contemporary modern twist on the illustrated montage poster. A lot times of this type of work can get labelled as ‘retro’ but I really wanted to show that this type of art is still as fresh, fun and relevant for today’s movie market in 2012 as it was back in 1972.
Cell Count is also the type of movie which can benefits from this school of poster art as there s some much going on and while you could just depict one isolated character or image to promote the film, it wouldn’t really tell you the whole story! and my main aim for the design was to capture all the rich nuances, characters, plot twists and atmosphere of the movie to build this static trailer.
I took a lot of influence from the Thai posters of the 70s, as they always had such a great flair for balancing out a broad spectrum of elements but still tying them together in a composition that looks unified as a whole.
