PROCESS

“We’ve come up for air… with a message to share.”

The audience for these oversized postcards was documentary producers and programmers.

Icarus Music specializes in scoring music for underwater films. These arresting photos were chosen to hint at what the audience already knows, and mentally take them to a surreal place, evocative of music,[/column]

while teasing at beauty and death (it was a shark show, after all).

This outside imagery was, hopefully, enticing enough to merit some fridge space*.

POSTCARD

Fun Facts

*Print was chosen over e-mail for this announcement because the reminder needed to stay “present” until the air date. Print is still a better choice for many messages, and this is coming from a designer that’s fully comfortable with both digital and natural media.
In an interesting side note, these two photos are from different photographers.
I have grown fond of the Ink Burrow typeface, used here in “Icarus Music” and “With a message to share”.
