    Annie Atkins

    July 15, 2017

    I stumbled upon the work of Annie Atkins a few weeks ago, and I am highly intrigued! This designer specializes in graphics for filmmaking, including movie posters, props, and set pieces. She has also worked on The Grand Budapest Hotel as a graphic designer, where her role involved “planning and creating every single item that would be designed in real life.” Read more about her work in the Wes Anderson movie here, and be sure to see her website.
