Finding Bobby Movie Poster

Finding Bobby Mockup.png

Typeface: Bebas Neue | Raleway

Background:

I didn't really have a lot of inspiration for this week's exhibit so I was just looking around Pexels to see if I could find anything that caught my eye. I found this photo and was originally going to try and turn it into podcast art but came up with an idea that the two guys could be brothers looking for something. From there I decided to make a mockup movie poster for a documentary called, "Finding Bobby." The full design is below.

I also wanted to focus on utilizing a single color to bring attention to the entire design. I found the NTFC logo that's in the bottom right and found that the green in the logo worked perfectly for the title text. The rest kind of just fell into place and this is one of my favorite designs so far from the class!

 

Proximity:

There are 3 visual sections that are grouped -- The award logos at the top, the title text, and the logo on the bottom right. The most important information is the title text so all of the necessary information is grouped in that section.

Alignment:

Most movie posters follow a center alignment and while I usually opt out of centering the main visual elements, the road divider in the image creates a perfect eye line straight into the title text so center alignment it is!

 

Repetition:

All of the text is either Raleway or Bebas Neue and follows the same color palette that is within the logo.

Contrast:

My biggest focus was to create a contrast between Bobby and the rest of the design. At first, I wanted to use yellow as the color of choice because it is so perfect when popping out in B&W designs but I found the lime green worked out well enough.
