The Wes Anderson movie poster series was a school project by Zachary R Hill where they were asked to create a series of movie posters in any way they wanted to. Being a big Wes Anderson fan, it was easy for him to choose the movies to work with. So, he decided to go with some of the newer films so the work would resonate more with audiences.
Most of the movies that Wes Anderson creates are full of wonderful iconography and beautiful objects. I really admire Anderson’s attention to detail when creating his films, and I think that really shows up in a lot of the little objects and icons he makes specifically for his films; so I decided to really focus on those objects and bring them to the forefront for the poster series. Big fans of the movies will recognize the imagery while hopefully people new to his movies can view the posters and want to know more.

I think my style and aesthetic combines my love with mid century design with modern visual communication and storytelling. I believe simple colors and shapes can communicate so much so I decided to run with that idea! As far as inspirations go there are too many to list! But to name a few: Mary Blair, Jim Flora, Cliff Roberts, those 3 are from that mid century world I love so much. I’m also inspired by a bunch of present day illustrators and designers like Tad Carpenter and Aaron Draplin. At the end of the day I am always inspired by my family, my girlfriend and God. Work really really hard and want it more than anyone else you know.
