Stockholm-based illustrator Kilian Eng certainly loves the ’80s. With a special interest in sci-fi and surrealism, he wears his influence on his neon colored, crystallized illustrations. The Swedish graphic artist’s work is like an escape to an outer space fantasy world where vintage synthesizers provide the daily soundtrack.
It comes as no surprise that Eng is quite prolific with artwork campaigns for like-minded alternative synth-pop musicians like M83, Caotico, Le Prix, Tesla Boy, Lazer Sword and more.
Going to talk about this and add a bit more explanation behind the design and concept of the poster.
Obviously lazer team is a comedy/action film, but I wanted to look at it from another angle, the quote from the trailer.
Using that as the base, looking at old military documents and creating a more serious and obscure poster. The blocked out text is taken from military documents where sensitive or classified info is blacked out. Obviously I can’t black out parts of the quote so decided to use it as a design focal point, Keeping the quote revealed. The blacked out text would make no sense but it brings the aesthetics and is the main idea.
It’s a bit different. A sideways take on the trailer and the premise of the film.
