Since 2005 I have attended every year and they always come up with some cool designs even if I think some are a bit askew (2006?).
This year, the fifteenth of the festival, I think is my favorite poster design they have ever done! I think it was very clever to make a collage out of a film strip. Below are the people responsible.
Graphic by Post Typography (in collaboration with photographer RaRah and 3-D illustrator Jeremy Martin).
The design concept surreally interprets Maryland Film Festival’s, ‘Film for Everyone’ motto into a single, iconic illustration that references classic movies, avant-garde film, and M.C. Escher.
A large “head” is created from a spiraling strip of film, whose frames are filled with clips of many faces representing the festival-goers.
To create this intricate design, dozens of Baltimore faces were photographed and then digitally transferred onto a film reel to create a seamless composite.
