It's been said that Alfred Hitchcock "did more than any director to shape modern cinema", though to modern cinema's credit, its demand that viewers sit still for hours on end in turn helped shape Alfred Hitchcock. Bringing Hitchcockian inspiration to the non-moving image: Needle Design.
Cardiff-based Matt Needle's pop-culture prints revolve around one simple notion: build the poster up around a bold, central silhouette of a main character or iconic object, an idea inspired by the classic Hitchcock profile, whose rotundness reminds us the man was also the master of sustenance. Hitch himself is honored with a six-film collage featuring his head stuffed with different crucial props (a knife for Psycho, a phone for Dial M, etc.); other flick-nods include a labyrinth-filled silhouette for Inception, a Jeff Bridges-shaped faded map for True Grit, and the enigmatic box from Mulholland Drive in the negative space left by Naomi Watts, which is also how her most ardent fans now refer to Home & Away. Television makes a strong showing, with Mad Men putting a little Don Draper within Don Draper, Boardwalk Empire & True Blood bringing bottles front-and-centre, and Game of Thrones standing in Sharpe contrast to the rest by using an actual photo of Sean Bean.
Forays into music count a tribute to Joy Division, a gig poster for Arcade Fire, and the "Phrenology Discography" series, that has silhouettes of Dylan, Lennon, and Bowie with their hair formed by the release dates + names of all their biggest hits -- "biggest" also being descriptive of Alfred, but that didn't stop him from casting his films with "Oh! You Pretty Things".
