Practice Graphic Design Projects - Design a Movie Poster or Book Cover

Create a Poster for a Movie About Your Life or the Cover of Your Autobiography


Personal design projects are a great way to find creative inspiration and practice design and software techniques. Without worrying about client demands, they allow you to fully express yourself through design. For the same reason, you may also find yourself creating version after version... but nonetheless, they are often a fun activity and can result in some work for your portfolio.

If a movie was made about your life, what would the movie poster look like? If you wrote an autobiography (or someone wrote a book about you), what would the cover look like? For this exercise, create a movie poster or book cover for a film or story about your life.

Take as much time as you like, and share whatever you like, whether it be a sketch or finished product. Please include some background on your design process, thoughts behind your design decisions, and the software and techniques you used to complete the work.

Your images can be submitted in the forum.
