Taught by award winning designer Annie Atikins, who has created iconics designs several of Wes Anderson's films. Annie will be flying in from Dublin Ireland, for a rare two day workshop that is limited to only 16 students.

Telegrams, love letters, prison escape maps... it’s not just the movie poster a graphic designer makes, but also any paper props that the actors work with on set. But how do you start designing graphics that can help tell a director’s story, as well as contributing to the genre, period, and visual aesthetic of a film?


  • This is a 2 day course
  • 10:00am - 5:00pm Saturday Nov 2
  • 10:00am - 5:00pm Sunday Nov 3

combines classroom lecture and practical assignments, including:​

  • When we design graphics for film, who are we designing for?
  • How a graphic designer works for the production designer, set decorator, and prop master
  • How to read and break down a film script
  • How graphics are used as storytelling devices
  • Researching graphic design and graphic methods from the past
  • How to avoid ending up on the IMDB Goofs page 
  • How to draw and make graphics by hand
  • How to put together an optimal portfolio for applying for work in an art department

This course is for you if...​

  • You’re a graphic designer or illustrator looking to translate your skills to filmmaking, or...
  • You’re a filmmaker looking to use graphic design effectively in your storytelling, or...
  • You're a design graduate wondering what to do next.


Annie specializes in graphics for filmmaking, which means that she makes any graphic pieces outlined by a period film script—like postage stamps and banknotes to help create Wes Anderson’s fictional State of Zubrowka; or shopfront signs and fake passports for Steven Spielberg’s New York. Her graphic design work can be seen in such films as:

  • Isle of Dogs
  • The Grand Budapest Hotel
  • The Boxtrolls
  • Room
  • Bridge of Spies
