This is a re-design for the dvd packaging for the film, Style Wars. It's a documentary about the birth of graffiti and hip-hop in New York in the mid 1980's. My concept was to convey the feeling of the time period and location through color and texture. The black & white photography symbolizes the grit and bleak tone of the projects and the color symbolizes the hope and positivity that hip-hop brought to the community, particularly the youth.
**This was a student project. All photography originally shot by Martha Cooper.
