Iron Man 3 Shortlist Illustrated Poster
- Client: ShortList Magazine
- Skills: Illustration, Poster Design
These alternative “Iron Man 3” posters were originally produced for a ShortList Magazine feature around the theatrical release of the film, for which I produced two illustrations. To begin with, as the brief was fairly open, I saw this as an opportunity to try out a more involved, photorealistic artistic style compared to the relatively simple minimalist style that typifies many alternative posters.
For the second option, I also wanted a more tactile, expressive image. As there are thousands of generic images of the character from the comic as well as the previous films floating around, I wanted an image that was clearly ownable and identifiable with this, the third film. I sketched ideas based around visual shorthands that best conveyed the title, without the need for copy, which evolved into the “3” image.
