When up-and-coming writer/director Patrick Hopkins approached me to create the artwork for his latest film 'Touchpaper', I was delighted. A mutual artistic taste fuelled our collaboration with the aim to avoid a modern style and create a stripped-down conceptual poster which is bold, clear and classic. With Patrick supplying his thoughts and initial art direction, retaining the mystery of the story whilst hinting at the subtle details was key. A few colour schemes were made to mimic various tones in the film as well as an original font, which I made by hand for Patrick to use in any additional communications.
