7 Samurai

?

Seven Samurai is a 1954 Japanese epic samurai drama film co-written, edited, and directed by Akira Kurosawa.

In homage of Kurosawa's film, this A2 Poster is produced through manual methods. White paint was brushed through stencils, applied onto a black-oil-stained woodboard. The bleak, solemn and grayscale nature of the poster represent the mood and colour of the iconic film.

Typographical juxtaposition is explored through the play of letterforms and writing formats, making latin alphabets look like japanese characters, and vice-versa.
