Poster  

LA HAINE

Personal project

I designed a poster for the movie 'La Haine' directed by Mathieu Kassovitz. 

The film follows three young men and their time spent in the French suburban "ghetto," over a span of twenty-four hours. I chose two visual elements which I remembered most, after years of seeing the movie. One is the setting of the film, the block of flats and the other one is the scene when Vinz shapes a pointing gun with his hand. Also, Vinz's real gun plays a central role at the end of the movie. I used red for the typo and the bullet to make the whole design more dramatic and to give a contrast to the grey and black background.
