Description
This movie poster was designed for the film Jean-Claude Van Damme. The original poster for this movie features the actor himself facing the camera. Because this film was essentially about the character's loss of identity and faith in himself, I thought it would be interesting for him to be portrayed as a faceless figure, generic to the viewer, as Jean Claude is ultimately extremely recognizable by the public. The background is composed of collaged photo-copied dollar bills in vast amounts to represent the massive amount of debt Jean Claude was in during the movie. I hand drew the typography because I thought it would accentuate the gritty feeling of the entire movie.​
