Wes Anderson <3

Being an Art Director this is not exactly dropping a bombshell – but I love Wes Anderson. Love, love, love. I clearly remember the first time I watched an Anderson movie (The Life Aquatic) and my jaw just dropped. Earlier I had been very fascinated with Baz Luhrmann's theatrical films and their beautiful scenography, but this was something else. Everything just felt... well, perfect. And not perfect in a boring, tidy way - but perfect in an aesthetically pleasing way, totally different from any other films I had ever seen. I was just totally amazed at how perfect everything worked together, from the colours to the props (down to the tiniest details) to the storyline and the dialogue.

At the time I wasn't even a designer by trade. In my heart, yes, but professionally I had just landed my first real job in marketing (which lasted for 1.5 horrible years before I realised I was meant to do something else). In retrospect, one might say that his films made me realise that I just HAD to get into a creative field. 

Now, luckily my husband also really likes Wes (would we even be married otherwise? Hmm...) but I think I might just have filled my quota of Wes Anderson themed posters. Too bad there are just so many beautiful ones out there! Here are a few that I wouldn't mind hanging on our walls...
