Great Expectations

Poster Design / Mini Book Design / Typography / Movie


Lines From The Movie: Great Expectations.

The purpose of the project is to explore connections between dialogue in the movie and typography.
A large scale poster and a miniature book to deliver my design concept.
I chose an emotional dialogue between main actor Finn and main actress Estella
in one of my favorite movies “Great Expectations”.




What is it like not to feel anything?

Let’s say there was a little girl.
And from the time she could understand, she was taught to fear…
Let’s say she was taught to fear daylight.
She was taught that it was her enemy that it would hurt her.
And then one sunny day, you ask her to go outside and play, and she won’t.
You can’t be angry at her, can you?

I knew that little girl and I saw the light in her eyes ­­
and no matter what you say or be, that’s still what I see.

We are who we are. People don’t change.




I manipulated shapes, including square, circle and triangle with different sizes
and directions of typography in the hope to illustrate the conflict dialogue between two people.



For expressing conflicts in the dialogue,
I designed a book, which combines two books together, but shall be read separately.
The book on the left side represents Finn and the book on the right side represents Estella.
