Good news! I was joint runner-up in the British Film Institute & Creative Review competition to design a cover for Mark Sanderson’s book on horror classic ‘Don’t Look Now’ for the 20th anniversary of the BFI film classic series. Seeing my work on the Creative Review site (here) has been the highlight OF MY LIFE, pretty much. The panel of judges included Rebecca Barden, BFI Publishing senior publisher; Sophia Contento BFI Publishing senior production editor; Patrick Burgoyne, editor at Creative Review; Rob Winter, publisher at Sight &Sound and the original book’s author Mark Sanderson.

The film, based on a short story by Daphne du Maurier, is set in England and Venice with water and the mysterious red coat playing a major role in both. What is seen and most importantly what is unseen create the tensions that fuel the story and I wanted to recreate that with the typography.

Some screencaps of the film:

Thanks to LCC for the nice words here.
