Haunting film poster by Neil Kellerhouse for ‘Under The Skin’

'Under The Skin' poster by Neil Kellerhouse

When it comes to the design of film posters there’s really only one person leading the way, and that’s Neil Kellerhouse. We’ve talked about his work many times before on the site and he’s honestly one of the most innovative designers out there, breaking the norms and clichés of major box office films.

His most recent work is for Jonathan Glazer’s new film Under The Skin, which features Scarlett Johansson who’s stalking and killing men. I won’t give anymore away, though the poster above does give you a hint of what she’s about. I think he’s done an amazing job on the colors of this piece, which to me feel referential to 2001. From what I’ve read the movie is supposed to be amazing, and I’m personally quite excited to see. You can see the full trailer below and judge for yourself.

While the Academy might be synonymous with the film industry, they seriously lack a visual representation and often get lumped in with their iconic effigy. California based agency, 180LA, set about bringing the Academy from the shadows and literally into the spotlight, introducing a modern identity of pure class. A rebranding that manages to reach for the future without forgoing the decades of history under the Academy’s wings. Continue reading this post…

GreyCity-Doc-Intro1

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Grey City (Cidade Cinza) is a documentary you should go out of your way to see.
