BAFTA Best Picture Brochure Covers…

It’s a shame that the Oscars can never do something quite as a nice as this. Indeed, looking at the BAFTA Best Picture nominees, I can’t help but think that the British Academy of Film and Television has crafted a far more representative list of the best films of 2012. As with years past, the august group have crafted a unique piece of art around each of their five nominees, each intended for their awards brochure, and trying to capture the essence of the nominee in question. Arguably they manage to do a better job than most of theatrical posters for these films. Check them out below and click to enlarge.The five covers below have been designed by Eda Akaltun & StudioSmall (heartagency.com & studiosmall.com)

  1. These are so lovely, I particularly like the one for The Help. It’s so true that current film posters are totally dire, and mostly butt ugly photoshop mish-mashes.
    I used to do poster design for a theatre a few years back and I loved working with such creative material, it was a great learning environment , the freedom of it was the best part(as opposed to designing corporate logos). Among others we did a Beckett series, The shape of things, Oleanna, and Misery.

    • That’s actually really cool. I wish more cinemas did something like that – you know, something distinctive.
