Banner designs for Zizkov Film Klub

ZFK magazine

Rory Wilmer and myself have decided to create our own design magazine. Contributors to have to put their work through the ‘Filter’ before publication, thus ensuring graphic continuity throughout. Above are a couple of examples of my contributions.

ZFK cover art

A riff on Rory Wilmer’s poster art for ZFK’s screeening of Tsotsi/Surfing Soweto.

ZFK: ‘If…’

Cover art for the forthcoming ZFK screening of Lyndsay Anderson’s ‘If…’

ZFK banner art

As one of ZFK’s in-house art design team, I was called upon to design posters for the Manhattan Film Festival screenings in Prague this year. These soon became synonymous with the club and were subsequently used for leaflets, stickers and, eventually, banners for the ZFK blogsite.

ZFK Screening Sept. 2007 – the THING

Another poster for the ZFK screening of John Carpenter’s the Thing. One of the advantage’s of a DVD player is the ability to take a snapshot of any frame of the movie to use as elements of the work instead of having to rely on Google Images etc.

ZFK Screening – Danger: Diabolik

A nice balance of elements: minimal lay-out but with the graphic lettering to add a touch of motion.

ZFK screening – This is England

ZFK showed Shane Meadow’s 80′s skinhead drama and this is the graphic we used for the posters etc. I think it’d make a great shirt.

ZFK – Black & White night

Poster for the ZFK screening of Equilibrium. The theme of the movie, one man’s stand against a totalitarian regime, suits my art style perfectly. I actually think it would be an interesting idea to re-make the film in the style of Renaissance (the animation not the art movement).

ZFK – New Look Film Club

First screening of the newly-formed Zizkov Film Klub, a brand new look to the program plus a series of logo ideas.
