I was randomly assigned the film Raging Bull (1980) [IMDB link] to design a poster in a way that represents a time period. I chose to focus on an illustrative psychedelic style to emphasise the distorted emotions in the film.
I focused on the psychological themes of the film such as marital breakdown and abuse. I aimed to convey the neglect, distress, suspicion, and growing emotional rift between the main characters portrayed by Robert De Niro and Cathy Moriarty.
A major influence on this design includes covers for the underground magazines the Chicago Seed and Gandalf's Garden (1960s-1970s).
Tools used include Clip Studio Paint and Adobe Illustrator.
This design has a Design Filter blog post featuring thumbnails and early sketches.
