  • Brainstorming

Since all the films are from the 20th century. I decided to include some pertinent visual elements that define the genre of films of their event. 
Vintage/old film: Film tape roll, film camera
Index feeling: recreating the representational scene on each film tape
Tools: Procreate, Photoshop
Color themes: To correlate better with the film posters, I decided to use some of the key colors from the posters directly.


  • Visual elements

  • Color palette

The colors extracted seemed to be too dark and not vivid enough. So I edited each color code, making them appear less pastel, and adding more contrast.​
