"Junior Motion Titles:
the King's Speech"
Advanced Problems in
Graphic Design II, Spring 2013
Instructor: Jen McKnight
This project was made up of 3 parts: designing a poster, packaging, and a motion
title animation for a movie. I chose "the King's Speech," a true story about King
George VI who is left silent by a speech impediment, and his friendship with a
speech therapist who helped him find his voice.
When approaching this project, I wanted each part to feel the same, but I wanted
each to have its own uniqueness to it at the same time. I chose a color palette and
typeface to reflect on the movie and the time period.
For the poster, I chose to highlight the couch where Bertie is given the courage and
the ability to overcome his greatest obstacle, his speech. I used a top hat to represent
Bertie, a gentleman-to-be-king, and I created a pattern fit for the time period that has
speech bubble motifs throughout, since the movie has to do with speech.
