Describe the brief from the client
Create a poster to promote the short film ‘The Man Who Married Himself’.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
The promotional campaign was based on the idea that the main character was obsessed with himself. The mirror is used as a device across the ambient campaign. The poster references the actual cover of the book that appears in the film. The typographic illustration and print technique make a romantic and nostalgic reference to the films quirky story-line.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The short film that the poster promoted went on to win:
Best Comedy Award
LA Short Film Festival 2010
Rhode Island Film Festival 2010
Selected for BFI London Film Festival.
