Classic Film Poster: Finished Art

This, is, it.

Finally, I got to finish my Raging Bull movie poster redesign after a few weeks and I am very happy about it. My approach to the design was to use the intricacy of typography and the boldness of negative space to give it a modern take on the classic film. I believe that hand-drawing type that spelled out a famous quote from the movie, “You Never Got Me Down, Ray” that formed a head of a bull too worked like a charm for my poster as it was the focal point of the whole thing. I also chose and edited a font that would show the poetic brutality that the movieĀ evokedĀ and also something that would complement the bull’s head design. For my background, I chose not to put any other elements but a texture that I made and put red over it so that it would somehow resemble a boxing ring in the movie and how grungy and bloody it was.

Overall, I think that my design worked great and interpreted the message and feel of the movie very well. It would capture the imagination of the current fans of the movie and captivate new fans to watch and love the movie as well.

After I was done, I wanted to make a couple of other interpretations to my move poster design. Here’s what I came up with.

Classic Film Poster: Presentable Concepts

For my concepts, I worked on two designs that I think that has the greatest potential.
This is the first one I made and it is mainly typography. I used my own type to create an image of a bull spelling out a quote from the movie, “You never got me down, Ray”. I wasn’t able to put color into it yet as I am torn between using black and white (which the movie was filmed on) or to put color in the background. I think my design conveys the emotion that the movie gives very well.

My second concept is an illustration of mine of a raging bull, literally. I think that the simplicity of the use of negative space and the grunginess of the font I used for the font of the movie title works very nicely and balances each other out to give it a nice overall design.
