aka has a starring role in the January issue of Empire, the UK’s leading film magazine, which is currently on newsstands. Our design artwork for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy has been chosen by their editorial team as one of 2011’s Best Movie Posters.
The hit movie, starring Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Toby Jones, John Hurt, Mark Strong, Benedict Cumberbatch and Ciaran Hinds, was one of the most popular and acclaimed British films of the year. In fact, it received no less than seven nominations at the British Independent Film Awards and topped the UK box office for three weeks.
The win is especially exciting for us considering that it marks the first foray for the agency into the film world. As film debuts go, it really doesn’t get much better! We’re really looking forward to calling ‘Action!’ on more creative work for films in the near future.
We were delighted to work in partnership on this project with David Livingstone, former Head of Marketing at Working Title Films.
Congratulations to our Creative Studio for this well-deserved recognition! Have a look at some more of the creative concepts that we developed for the film in the below image gallery.
