Memento Poster

The following poster was created for my Typography Studio I class:




This is a conceptual poster for the movie Memento. I created the typeface for the movie title which is used in this poster as a separate project. For the poster I wanted to use type to express the chaotic nature of Leonard's memory. The big block of layered type represents his memory, and how he begins to mix up his story with his memory of Sammy Jankins. The eroding background is used to represent the fading and decaying aspect of his mind.

The project in itself was very different than what I'm used to. Basically because it was very conceptual, and instead of looking for literal or visual interpretations of what happens in the movies, I had to dig deeper and look into what made the movie stand out and decide on a way of portraying that.
