For my personnel poster I decided to make a poster based on one of my favorite movies which is 7 Samurai. I made the color palette of the overall poster to somewhat achromatic, but its more on the toned down red rather than grey or black. I picked this color palette to give tribute to director, Akira Kurosawa’s, love for the use of black and white in his movies. Let’s start with the things I did to portray the 7 in 7 Samurai. Firstly, I drew 7 rays on the sun then I also drew 7 birds. Then I picked that specific font due to the reason it somewhat resembled a brush stroke but also it reminded me of blood stains (the movie was brutal for its time).
