Every film/movie has a graphic design aspect, whether it be for marketing the film, or for graphic elements within the film. Graphic elements within the film are usually subtle, half of our work doesn’t even end up on screen, and when they do, it is only for a few seconds. Some examples of these elements include generic branding packages, exploration maps, business cards, posters, interfaces, etc. Graphic designers are hired by filmmakers to produce these, oftentimes to prevent using real products and logos due to copyright issues. They are also needed for prop making, whether that be 2D designs, or a blueprint for 3D props that can be sent to another department for manufacturing. For my senior capstone, I created a variety of graphic items to support the senior film projects.
