Somehow I missed that we've announced these already, so this may be old news to everyone, but I've been meaning to point out a recent Criterion design I'm quite proud of:
Pigs, Pimps, and Prostitutes, a boxed set of some fantastic early films by Shohei Imamura, is my favorite Criterion design of mine in quite some time. I'm especially happy with the type: all the title/headine type is hand-drawn; I even created a whole font set to finish off the menus and packaging. And how do you not love that slipcase cover image? And here's some shots of the individual covers; click to see them larger:
And while I'm at it, I should mention Wise Blood, too, which I also designed, though I can't take much credit for the cover--that brilliance is all Josh Cochran. I've been looking for an opportunity to work with Josh for a while now, and I couldn't be happier with the final results, he really knocked it out of the park. (The film is pretty great, too!)
UPDATE: Josh has generously posted some (or, actually, I think it might be all, unless I'm forgetting one) of his sketches for Wise Blood at his blog.
Josh also points out the coincidence that Wise Blood star Brad Douriff played Doc COCHRAN on Deadwood... I wouldn't think anything of it if it didn't follow so closely after hiring Ian DINGMAN to draw Bottle Rocket's DIGNAN. Is it possible I'm putting more work into these assignments than is necessary? Apparently I could do just as well by assigning projects via free association... ;)
