colour | 4 – grand budapest hotel
Two days ago I came across this beautiful image. Before even watching the trailer (which was released today, watch it here) or knowing what the movie was even about I already loved it. It’s no secret that Wes Anderson is some sort of cinematic genius, constantly nailing it in the various departments of storyline, character development, consistent aesthetics, folky tunes, good typography and those awesome muted and saturated colours.
I’m not usually a huge fan of piggy-pink but it pops so nicely on this poster in front of the muted mountain landscape. Notice how the two cliffs on the each side are dark brown, somewhat framing the hotel and the mountains in the center of the poster are light and airy, allowing the typography to stand out. Well done.
I’m looking forward to watching this one, are you?!
