These posters were created from an ARTD 251 Design Toolbox assignment at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In this assignment, I was instructed to watch the movie Eames the architect and the painter by Bill Jersey and Jason Cohn. After that, I was asked to create posters that represented the movie and could potentially be used as movie advertisements. Therefore, I wanted to make posters that depicted the Eames' individually.

Firstly, I began with Charles Eames, who started his career as an architect, so I wanted to represent his iconic chair with the representation of how he would calculate his work, represented by a blueprint. Next, I wanted to show Ray her previous career as a painter with a portion of her paintings that was a gift to Charles. I made sure to change the color palette from its original brown to the iconic Eames colors of yellow, red, blue, black, and white. Lastly, I wanted them to face each other as a pair to represent their need for one another when it came to them creating their innovative designs.

Process work

I began this project by using three words to describe the Eames' thoughtful, foundational, and colorful. Thought this I    used the physical attributes drawn in my matrix to come up with different concepts in my sketches. Feel free to click on the photos to make them bigger.
