The goal of this project was to promote a film, that is apart of a broader film festival, in the form of a poster. Another criteria for this project was that it had to be hand manipulated typography for the headline.
When I was assigned the movie Cool Hand Luke a few phrases stuck at to me, however, the quote what 'we've got here is a failure to communicate stuck' out to me. I choose to paint the quote on mirrored sunglasses which the person who says this quote in the movie wears. It follows a guy in a Florida prison farm so I wanted to try and capture some gritty texture to the poster, which ended up being through dirt. Throughout the process I had to shorten the quote to: A Failure to Communicate.
It was a fun project to work on and it ended up in a good place. Taking suggestions from the final critique I made minor adjustments to the secondary type to help make the poster stronger.
