Drew Struzan

Drew Struzan may be the most famous poster maker alive.

We are going to study his techniques and approaches to help us understand what works and what doesn't work with great poster design.

This will require you to sharpen your process skills as this will be the most difficult project you have ever done in art.

Design skills such as hierarchies will be critical. 

Use of value and reference will be the upmost importance.

We will study his career from his meager beginnings to his incredible success. How he almost lost it all, and now his great return to leading the industry.

Some of the most memorable images to the film you love were created by this man...

The incredible Drew Struzan.
