This project was part of the subject Visual Design during my study. For eight weeks, I worked on a visualization of the atmosphere of a movie by only using its title in black and white. In the process I learned how to convey a certain atmosphere through typography and motion.

After watching the movie and looking closely at some scenes, I was able to perceive the atmosphere of the movie and started doing visual research about it. I practiced to trust in my intuition and collected a bunch of typographic posters as inspiration.

After lots of experiments and feedback rounds, I started working with the movie title. As the movie I chose is called "1917", I only had four letters to design. I got into a great flow of experimenting with paint, ripped paper and different brushes to communicate the atmosphere of the movie.
