There's some incredible 3D movies (opens in new tab) to look forward to this year - one being Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah (opens in new tab)' starring Russell Crowe. Here, designer Tom Muller (opens in new tab) was commissioned in November to create the logo and publication design of a 'Noah' graphic novel, based on one of the earlier scripts.
"I worked closely with Darren, Ari and Niko to create the logo and publication design of the book, with publisher Image Comics (opens in new tab)coordinating the production," Muller explains.
"The key element was the creation of a custom typeface for the title and the design of an 'ark icon' that runs as a motif throughout the publication - literally from cover to cover, applied to the credit and biography pages, and the individual chapter pages.
"I also created a protozoic pattern for the books cover pages, which was made by scanning and editing marbled paper textures. Since we had a specific budget to work with, many of the effects we wanted to achieve - adapting and subverting the language of bible publications - were created as design patterns, rather than using different paper stocks."
"Additionally we decided to create a special limited edition (of 300) that comes in a dark linen cloth cover and slipcase with debossing and gold foil stamping and a special inlay signed by the three creators - an object that further plays with the notion of a bible design - which will be available soon.
"The graphic novel is as beautiful as they come, perfectly showcasing the epic tale of the movie whilst the logo and publication design effortlessly illiustrates the scope and feel of the film."
