Film Poster Illustration
Film poster illustration is a favourite of ours at Howell Edwards. We’ve been lucky enough to work with Festival de Cannes over the past few years to design a series of film and television posters for private offices, and gifts for cast and crew on various productions. Along with design and art, film is a big love of ours at Howell Edwards, and a great source of inspiration for our work. There’s nothing quite like losing yourself in a great romance or the thrills of an action film to kickstart your creativity.
We were commissioned privately to illustrate a film poster for the movie Her for the employees at Festival de Cannes Head Office. We both fell in love with this film on its release, and count Spike Jonze as one of our favourite filmmakers, whilst also being big fans of Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson, so it was a real honour to be asked to produce this design. Whilst the theatrical release poster is a photograph of the main character, we’ve taken a more Howell Edwards approach and illustrated an element of the storyline – Theodore’s relationship with Samantha, his AI OS. We love working in this way, it’s something that we’ve tried to do across all of the film and movie posters that we’ve designed and produced – highlighting an essential part of the film without providing spoilers.
Do you have a film or television related commission? Are you looking for illustration for film posters? We’d love to hear from you.
