Ten illustrated posters for The Double up for grabs

Art, Illustration, Music Video / Film, Type / Typography

Posted by Mark Sinclair, 4 April 2014, 12:45    Permalink    Comments (90)

With the film opening in the UK today, we have ten copies of Empire Design's fantastic illustrated poster for The Double to give away (detail shown, above). Click through to see how you can win one...

This competition is now closed. For the list of the ten winning entries, please see the bottom of the post. Well done to all the winners.

Starring Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska, the Double is based on Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s novel of the same name and follows the story of a rather awkward fellow (Eisenberg), driven to despair after his life is usurped by someone who looks exactly like him, but is his behavioural opposite.

In our post about the eye-catching new photographic posters created for the film, Empire say that the illustrated version (above) was inspired by one created for Alfred Hitchcock's The 39 Steps which also features bold 3D type.

In keeping with the darkness and claustrophobic atmosphere of the photographic versions, the illustrated cityscape is lit solely by a spotlight shining on a lone protagonist. Empire art director John Calvert worked on the poster with illustrator Warren Holder – the full version is shown below.

And we have ten copies of the illustrated poster to give away, courtesy of StudioCanal.

To win one all you have to do is come up with a suitable title for a film of any genre starring a designer, or with design as its subject. Puns are more than welcomed. The Kern of the Screw, Dr Embargo, or even The Man With the Golden Swatch, for example, could easily be ones you might not want to use.

And, really, we know you can do much better.

So leave your film title suggestions in the comments below, along with your name and email address, and we'll pick our top five and annouce the winners next week. The deadline for entries is 10am GMT on Monday April 7.

The Double is in UK cinemas today. See more of Empire's work here.

Thank you for all your entries. We have now picked our ten winners! They are...
