Designing Woman


Lately, I've been getting back to my old hobby of playing around in Photoshop. Today's fussing and fiddling produced the above work. It's a faux DVD cover for the imaginary Criterion version of the Virgin Suicides. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, since I'm a bit rusty with the old graphic design.
I've been quite madly in love with illustration and design lately, and so I thought I'd share with you some of my favourite Criterion covers.



Reminds me of the illustrations in Le Petit Prince.






Simple, creepy, to the point.


What are your favourite Criterion (or other) DVD covers? I'm probably going to do a separate post just on film posters!

If there is ever word about a criterion collection version of the Virgin Suicides, send your design in! It would be absolutely perfect.

You are completely right about the Royal Tenenbaums cover. I love the Little Prince
