Play Poster: Girl, Interrupted
The goal for this project was to play with the typography of a movie title and create a play poster that captures the feel of the movie. I chose the movie "Girl, Interrupted". It is about a girl, Susanna, who is sent to a mental hospital after she tries to commit suicide. The movie follows her story over the next couple of years as she interacts with her fellow patients and the people who are in charge of looking after them. I chose to use a razor blade since it is one of the many forms of self-infliction tools mentally ill people use. I wanted to bring in the feeling of the patient's sense of brokenness through the text, especially with the word interrupted being slashed in half.
