In 2011 I started working as a voluntary with Oslo's best film club, Cinema Neuf. Moving media is one of my many passions, and this project truly enabled me to explore it in a graphical way.
The face of Cinema Neuf is an icon of film history, and has featured in their logo since their startup in 1989. The actress' name is Mae Marsh, one of the first female stars of cinema. Her face in the logo is from the film Intolerance from 1916, created by David W. Griffith. This was important to me for several factors, and I wanted to keep the honour to Marsh by creating the logo as an emblem shaped as a traditional cinema ticket - and in the film media's original color, black and white.
Apart from the logo, I designed the website, posters, folders and more. For the website, I focused on the usage of images, which were cut in movie formats and in the traditional poster. In the background I used a film grain texture in blue, complementary to the faint brown gradient in the header. In short, I wanted to keep the design informal and film focused.
