This brief was to design a brochure promoting a space film festival, organised by the British Film institute. When starting this project I looked to the movies in the festival to inspire the concept. I used only photography for the entire design to keep in line with the film theme. A lot of the movies promoted in the festival portray how delicately planned space exploration has to be in order to be successful. The “glitch” motif represents how easy it is for things to go wrong in space, and for minor glitches to jeopardise entire missions, ultimately showing how dangerous and unpredictable space is. But also how brilliant it is that humans have managed to travel there.
I also thought the glitch was a good visual reference to more primitive screen technology in previous decades, harking back to the origin of the cover photo; the Apollo 11 ‘69 mission during the actual Space Race.
