Award winning posters

Slightly amazed and dumbfounded that the good movie-poster loving folks over at The International Movie Poster awards website have voted my quad for THE ROAD as the best UK poster of 2013, and given an honourable mention to my London Film Festival quad for Scott Graham’s SHELL. All the other award-worthy posters can be seen on the IMPAwards site. Not wishing to blow my own trumpet, but considering the size of my studio (ie. just me), to have beaten all the big agencies is quite a surprising coup. I’m still waiting for the news of an administrative error, and them giving it to Alpha Papa instead, or something.

Anyway, I’m delighted to have worked on these projects; they are both excellent examples of British filmmaking at its indie best. Thanks to Verve Pictures for the help, trust and support as usual. I’d urge you to watch them both – THE ROAD is available here, and SHELL is available here.

To top off the weekend’s awards glory, filmmaker Kieran Evans won a BAFTA for his brilliant debut KELLY+VICTOR, for which I designed the poster, here.

Just to be clear, I don’t get wined and dined at exclusive London locations for any of this, so I’m just having a nice cup of tea and a digestive.
