Noir at Night is a 2 day film festival featuring classic film noir movies. The project was to create a film poster based on one of the movies and to create a direct mail piece. I wanted to stick to the foggy grays and blacks throughout my concept. I also tried to keep any characters in ambiguous shadows so viewers could picture themselves as these detectives or dames. There is a festival VIP box in development currently. I will add pictures of the final product once its complete.


The box is completely handcrafted. The concept for the box is a VIP gift box for the consumer who buys VIP access to the Noir at Night Film Festival. The items inside are to allow the consumer to get in the spirit of the noir era and further enjoy the films. I used a laser engraver for the top and inside top designs. I also used the laser to cutout the foam core sheets to fit my items in the bottom section as well as cut the design into the flask. Every items label was created in Illustrator. This whole thing was a learning process but I had a blast doing it!
