While Nash Edgerton was in Dallas last weekend to promote his directorial debut THE SQUARE, we hung out with the man himself before our Q&A for the film. During that hang session, Edgerton showed me a lot of really awesome designs that almost made it as official posters. They ranged from French noir, to the one you see above, and those after the break. Since THE SQUARE opened yesterday in Dallas, I contacted Nash and asked him to send me any artwork that never was used to show the online world. The two posters Edgerton sent me are his favorites. After staring at them over and over, I decided the second spoke to me more - it’s simple but if you’ve seen the film, it’s saying so much. You can check it out after the break!
Both of these were designed by Jeremy Saunders for the Australian release. You can check out Saunders’ other work at JeremySaunders.com. If you’re in Dallas, head to the Magnolia and check out this film - it’s so damn good. If you’re not from around these parts, beg your local arthouse theater to get this release. Edgerton and his brother Joel (THE SQUARE’s co-writer) are going places.
While you’re still here, check out Edgerton’s awesome (when dealing with this guy, you use the term “awesome” a lot) short films SPIDER and FUEL (respectively).
