SIFF /// 2011


This year I had the opportunity to work on the design program and advertising campaign for SIFF 2011. To Northwest film buffs SIFF stands for Seattle International Film Festival, a 24-day blitz of over 400 films, now in it's 35th year.

For this years campaign, we took films that have had their premiere at SIFF to celebrate everything that the acronym has stood for. Everything from "Somewhat Intense Family Feud" (The Empire Strikes Back, 1980) to "Stomach Incubates Furious Foreigner" (Alien, 1979 World premiere).

After about 6 months of work we've just unleashed everything from the festival trailer, animated bumpers, logo treatments, outdoor advertising, posters, and pretty much every type of collateral material you could think of.

Everything was completed at WONGDOODY Seattle in collaboration with the amazing talents at Oh, Hello and Clatter & Din.

Here's a little sampler:

For the bumpers before the festival films began, we made up our own acronyms and produced them with film genres in mind. We had the best intentions of making them all family friendly. However, when you're making short films, seeing a corpse or two is almost inevitable.

Every now and again I scan the drafting table, point at something and say, "done".

This isn't science.

SUPERHEROES // SF

Superheroes // SF

Society6 did a pretty amazing job with their Superheroes show. Though all I could do was laugh when I walked into D-Structure last weekend.

The silver lining to discovering that your first piece in a group show has been hung upside down is that your art career can only improve from there.

It was an honest mistake. Those guys do great work. Hopefully I'll get an opportunity to exhibit with them again soon.

Check out more photos of the show opening here.

A poster for an audience of one. And he can't even read yet.

I created this poster for my good friends Chad and Kim, who are moving from Chicago (with baby Ben in tow) to Seattle this week.
