Something Different (1963) poster

Something Different

Poster for the classic Czech film

Role: Graphic Designer

I had seen Věra Chytilová's most famous feature Daisies — which, like most people, I loved — but when I caught her earlier film Something Different (O něčem jiném) on streaming-service MUBI one afternoon, I felt compelled to create a visual tribute.

The film follows two unconnected stories — one about a bored housewife, and another following real-life gymnast Eva Bosáková. I couldn't stop thinking about the film for weeks afterward, and decided to channel that into a poster.

I wanted the image of the gymnast to look as if it was cut-out by hand, which is an effect that never quite works (for me) when done digitally. This version is a rough draft of a version I intended to make by hand. (The plan was to print and cut out 4 images of Bosáková,  which I would then re-scan.) Like many personal design projects, other obligations got in the way, and the inspirational moment for this poster passed me by — though I still really like the concept.
