I was contacted by a member on the board for the New Hampshire Film Festival in late summer 2018. They were in need of a pro bono partner to do their social and print work for the 2018 festival which was taking place in Portsmouth, NH.
The dead concept: for context, New Hampshire’s state motto is ‘Live Free or Die’ - ‘indie cinema or die’ felt like a fitting tagline for this small film festival looking to take hold amongst a growing community of film fans.
The selected concept: these posters put a focus on some of the festival's more well-known featured films of the year - which oftentimes are missed or overlooked by festival-goers who assume that only low-budget or regionally produced films are screened at NHFF.
