Cut Copy - Gigposter for the Granada Theater in Dallas
The first poster I ever made for the Granada Theater in Dallas was for the “dream bill” (to me anyway) of Cut Copy, Foals, The Naked and Famous, and Holy Ghost!.
My initial concept was to riff on the famous Polish poster for Andrei Tarkovsky’s Solaris, long one of my favorite pieces of bold graphic design. A rare case of a poster making me want to see a film straight off. I remember seeing it in a collection of 70s movie posters in the late 90s and thinking “I have to see whatever this is” and frankly I think loving that poster design so much helped me to have more patience with the (very deliberately paced, to say the least) film.
So the original plan was to make this one a very minimal homage to that design, but things never really quite end up the same as they start.
