  Double-duty movie poster/ brochure for a film festival

I developed this poster that folds to a brochure for a fictional film festival of the great director Akira Kurosawa and his leading man Toshiro Mifune. The poster is designed so it can easily fold into brochure format and looks equally good either way.

My role on this project was to design, produce and write the printed piece.

The design required formating the bold poster imagery so that the art was oriented to look great in all panes of the brochure. I thought the cropped, bold black images seemed reminiscent of zen brush painting.

Each page featured information on specific films from the Kurosawa/Mifune catalogue.

Rasterizing the black and white photo as a half-tone pattern over the red background created some interesting tones that worked well with the striking black and white tumbnails from the films.
