The Criterion series has been a vessel and an amazing platform for illustrators to portray popular movies with their own illustration style to create an incredible range of diversity for DVD package designs. The project’s goal was to create a 3-set DVD box of movies similar in theme. Each DVD would come with its own designed cover and back to fit the traditional Criterion proportions and labeling. In the case of this project, I chose three popular Korean psychological thriller films: The Handmaiden, Lady Vengeance, and A Tale of Two Sisters. All three movies have strong female characters in play overcoming psychological trauma. The color palette amongst all three cater to a darker cool and greenish tone which made them perfect for a designed trio set.
