THE DARK KNIGHT
A trilogy of movie posters, similar to my thesis ones, for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Saga (2005-12). The main inspiration of this work was to show off the themes of the films done in a minimalist style, similar to those of Saul Bass, Paul Rand, and Swiss poster design.
I wanted to do something unique and not show the Batman symbol in these posters, but still represent the character using the minimalist style. I ended representing Batman as a light gray cloud, inspired by a Greco-Roman mosaic of Phobos, the god of fear.
Unlike modern online posters inspired by Rand and Bass, these don't mime their styles or paste famous elements from their posters (which occurs as a single Google Image search shows you). Instead, I created original poster designs using the philosophies of Bass and Rand, along with some Swiss-inspired elements.
