Travelling back in time and reminiscing the good old days gives a positive vibe to many. For the past 10 days, well-known movie poster designer Gopi Prasannaa was on a mission to bring back something nostalgic to the movie-goers.
Famous for designing promotional content for movies like OK Kanmani, Kaatru Veliyidai, Vikram Vedha, Dhruva Natchathira, Mersal, Raja Rani, Kaththi, and Vivegam, Gopi says that working on a commissioned work and doing something out of our own interests are different. “For commissioned works, we have to work according to the briefs given by the films’ makers. But for independent works like this, we can explore a lot. I can do posters like art. I have explored various styles for Ninaivugalai Thedi poster series. For example, 16 Vayathinile poster looks like a line drawing whereas, Puthiya Paathai looks like an oil painting. And all these posters reflected the soul of the movie or its characters. All these movies were celebrated and loved during that period. But what’s even more surprising is that many from the current generation seem to enjoy those classics,” he shares.
