Gorgeous BAFTA artwork

{via one of those random tumblr dashboard links, followed by a bit of digging}

BAFTA apparently commission a different graphic artist every year to come up with 5 posters in their own style for each of the Best Picture nominees, and they use these 5 images as covers for these brochures that they hand out to all attendees. I particularly like what Adam Simpson came up with this year for Black Swan and The King’s Speech. I think the one for The Social Network is a bit too subtle. The True Grit and Inception posters I find stylish but they don’t evoke an emotional response for me.

Last year the artist chosen was Travis Cockburn, whose retro-40s style is a huge contrast (the 2010 nominees were Avatar, The Hurt Locker, Up In The Air, Precious and An Education.

I’ll definitely be looking out for next year’s.
