Adam Simpson's Official BAFTA 2010 Best Film Nominees Posters
Though the 64th Annual BAFTA Awards, the British version of the Oscars, took place earlier this week (The King's Speech swept the boards) we just found some BAFTA-related art that you must see. Every year, BAFTA commissions a designer to create posters of the five Best Film nominees for their annual brochure. We featured the awesome posters they made last year and they've finally posted the art online from this year (via HeyUGuys) and they are quite intriguing posters. This year's series of Black Swan, Inception, The King's Speech, The Social Network and True Grit was designed by Adam Simpson. See all five below.
Out of these, my favorites are Black Swan and The King's Speech. I don't really like The Social Network or True Grit posters at all, the imagery isn't that poignant in either one. If you want to learn more, head over to the BAFTA website, where you can download the entire brochure "given to all attendees on the night" that contains the five different covers (posters). The brochure is available online as an "eMag" and includes video interviews with the designer, Adam Simpson, and much more. We're fans of great poster art and as we come down to the last few weeks before 2010 wraps up at the Academy Awards, I wanted to share this series, too.
