Sharktopus. It’s coming.

Aug 15 Today's Mood

It goes without saying I’m pretty excited about the upcoming feature Sharktopus. While I’m sure I’ll need to do some information visualization after it comes out, I thought it would be good to get another design quickie out my system and make a movie poster for it. Recently I’ve been checking out old japanese movie posters, and wanted to do something along those lines, just keeping everything minimalist. I think it sets a nice tone for how epic Sharktopus is going to be!

From start to finish took just over an hour, so not too much spit and polish on it. However at least it’s not too overworked, so there are benefits in trying to keep to a time limit.

    Not gonna lie or make a big explanation, was kinda just in the mood for some japanese type:D As someone who actively studies the language and as a graphic designer, I’m always looking for excuses to play around with it typographically.

    But I figure it goes nicely with the minimalist aesthetic so there’s that too.
