So anyway, I watched the trailer on Tuesday night – was intrigued – and went to see the film on [orange] Wednesday.
I really, really liked the film. It was fun and quirky and I like how it was filmed… although I couldn’t tell you what I mean by that because I don’t know a thing about film making technicalities. I also felt the way it was put together appealed to me as a graphic designer. Although I couldn’t quite put into words why… Aside from the amazing lettering used for the ‘Part One’, ‘Part Two’ etc. interlude images. (I can’t find images of these or I would be sharing them all.)
It wasn’t until the next day when I read this article on the Creative Review Blog about the graphic design used in the film that I realised just how much that beautiful underlying design had an impact on my opinion of the film. Afterall, I am a graphic designer and that is first and foremost how I view the world.
