Glory at Sea great, Cars great
I really love this film!
Brandon – Very nice job on Rumble Fish. Many thanks!
Daniel – The Road Warrior – Perfect choice!
Thank you Lester!
Yes, Lester, thanks.
Keep requests coming, everyone. I’m sitting here right now and trying to figure out what the hell my next cover will be (while avoiding actual work, of course).
Mulholland Drive, Brandon – Wheeeew!
And how about Lone Star and King of Comedy, too?
OK, one more historically-themed Woody Allen:
Thanks, Jaspar. I dig your style too.
Good Love & Death cover, and I think it would also look good with ‘And’ printed on the right.
Awesome Love and Death cover.
Its Woody Allen’s greatest film in my opinion.
Love it, Benjamin.
I was actually just thinking about experimenting with fabric textures for some future cover designs.
Conor, that Sunshine one is probably my favorite one so far. Definitely one of the better attempts at a minimalistic design here so far.
It’s definitely the most minimalist! I love it but there have been some pretty fabulous designs! This is more so the Criterion way, simplistic.
Ooh, Sunshine. Love it.
haha thanks. i tried to do one with a photo of the sun coming in from the top but when that failed i just went minimalist. i might do a few more in a similar style…maybe.
haha yeah Samantha – Sunshine is so awesome. I saw it last night for the first time and was blown away.
OK. This time, Cameron Crowe’s Vanilla Sky. Except, following on from the feel of the film, it’s all a jumble!
How do most of you get the C logo to look so clean and be able to change the color too? I’ve tried grabbing it from a Criterion cover picture but it just looks horrible.
i just copy the pic before me – so like id copy paste the poster above into photoshop and then use the magic wand tool to select the criterion logo and then copy paste into your own design.
I copy an existing Criterion cover from the website, color over the artwork so that there’s only the “C” and the sidebar left, then I take that and paste it as a new layer over my image and set that layer to darken, lighten, multiply, or screen depending on what color it is. If it’s dark, I’ll set it to lighten or screen. If it’s light, I’ll set it to darken or multiply. Then you just play around with the opacity levels until you get the desired effect.
But Conor’s way sounds less time consuming.
JP BELMONDO and BRANDON BEDAW…nice job.
I like the cover of Sunshine much more than the film.
That Frenzy cover is a masterwork.
