Jesse Kirsch has been the artwork director and designer of the Columbia College Movie Pageant for the previous 5 years. He lately completed the newest design for the festivals twenty third yr operating this week at IFC Middle in NYC. The posters and mailers are superbly completed.
His most important parameter has been that he should use an iconic piece of movie or film-making within the design — an object that folks can immediately acknowledge and relate to. What would usually be cliché and overdone, Jesse tries to strategy from a graphic standpoint and use shapes and shade to rework the subject material. For 2010, he used vertical strips of film tickets to create a skyline and reflection, tying the design to NYC the place it resides.
