This was my response to the D&AD illustration brief. I was required to create an original cover illustration for the movie magazine Little White Lies depicting the main character of one of their favourite films from 2011. I decided to create a cover based on the film Drive as it was a personal favourite.
With clear influences from the 1980’s, Drive is filled with 80’s imagery, sounds, clothing, even to the extent to actively removing more contemporary architecture from final shots, however it is still set in current times.
Because of this I wanted to create a modern clean design which incorporated the 1980’s in one way or another. I decided to focus on 80’s technology and I used unspooled cassette tape to weave the type, and a VHS camcorder to display my illustration of Ryan Gosling on a television set. Unfortunately I couldn’t get hold of a television from the 80’s, so I had to settle for something a little newer, but I don’t think it affected the final composition much.

This was my response to the Little White Lies D&AD student brief.

I never submitted it due to unforeseen circumstances. Plus it’s hardly like any other Little White Lies covers, which are entirely illustrative. 

The type is created out of unspooled cassette tapes, and the portrait is an illustration being played through a 1980’s VHS player.

Let me know what you think, I’m looking for any constructive feedback :)
