3/8 design for the movie Bridge of Spies. Part of my 2016 Best Picture series
movie poster design for Bridge of Spies
About the movie:
During the Cold War, an American lawyer is recruited to defend an arrested Soviet spy in court, and then help the CIA facilitate an exchange of the spy for the Soviet captured American U2 spy plane pilot, Francis Gary Powers.
About the poster:
The concept was to create a design that would show the scale of these two superpowers compared to Donovan. The color is inspired partly for the nation colors as well as the look of vintage propaganda posters of the period. I also decided to switch the color of the “i” in the title as a nod to the exchange of prisoners.
