REAR WINDOW FILM POSTER
In my Graphic Design course of Winter 2020, our professor asked us to design an illustration-heavy poster for the 1954 film Rear Window. The general requirements were to develop imagery for the poster using rhetorical devices as a graphic design methodology, and to simulate a one, two, or three-color print run - or pantone matching system (PMS) colors. In simpler, non-designer terms, we were required to limit the poster to three colors.
My problem statement was to communicate the different objects and/or clues that the main character uses to solve the disappearance of a woman (his neighbor). The rhetorical devices that are employed in my design are metaphor and amplification.
