 film graphics

In the fall of 2014, I was approached by a friend and filmmaker, Austin Kase, to work with him again. This time, the task was to design some graphics to go into a concept trailer for his screenplay, Wish You Were Here. Wish You Were Here is a coming-of-age comedy that follows Adam Getz, a recent Harvard graduate who is forced to move back in with his parents after his post-graduation employer is revealed to be a fraud. Part of Austin's vision for his trailer included local signage to help set the tone of the film. Adam's hometown is marked by muted colors and faded patterns, so I wanted my signs to fit into that world. I also helped to design the treatment of the title at the end of the film: a hazy, shimmery pale
gold sans-serif.
