Minimal Movie

This 3 1/2 – star assignment was decently challenging and a great way to warm up my visual design thinking for this week.

This objective was to design a tv show or movie poster using minimalistic design principles. I like the aesthetic of minimalism, but at the same time, I like adding a lot of layers to things –it depends on the project. At first, I was going to do Hunger Games but it already had a fairly minimalistic design so I went back to some other movies I was thinking about last week. The one I chose is an old rom-com called 13 Going On 30 featuring Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo. I loved this movie as a kid and I still find it a cheesy and easy to love classic.

I used a software similar to Photoshop, called Manga Studio to create the house outline and the pink background. I then used Pixlr to add the dust effect (because she pours wishing dust on her dollhouse in the movie), and the font. I feel like it would have felt too bare to have it without dust but I think the overlay may have made it too much for a minimal style.
