raiders of the lost ark poster by strongstuff raiders of the lost ark poster by strongstuff
i haven't seen this movie in ages. i remember my aunt took me to the theater to see it when i was a little kid. the face-melting ark of the covenant really knocked me for a loop.

anyway, i recently finished this commission. didn't know exactly where it was going when i began, but i like where it wound up. any time i can incorporate typography into my designs, i'm a happy camper.

Wow, this is awesome! Reminds me of the awesome Eric Tan Indy prints (If you haven't seen them, check them out, amazing stuff). I've always been a fan of the "propaganda" style (or at least that's what I call it, lol) and your work fits right in there perfectly... great stuff!

Beautiful design work as always. I see what you do with typography, color, contrast, shapes, and am blown away. And it angers me that so many people these days think that having photoshop on their computer makes then a graphic designer....no it just means you can cobble together a flyer that looks like shit, but is at least, it's very neatly done shit.

Seems odd to me that someone would not have seen this film in years...as I probably watch it two or three times a year. One of my favorites.

I do like your typography here the best. It looks like something that might have been used for the text if this had been a paperback book from the time.

I really like the design. Certainly a different concept for the ultimate action oriented history professor. Reminds me of something like the vintage posters in a way, but with a new twist. Great job!

Next to the wonderful typography, my favourite part is the upper right corner. I took me a bit to figure it out - but now that I see what you did there = awesome!
