"Super-duper minimalist. These are great." — Matt Zoller Seitz

"Killer. A must have." — Roads & Kingdoms
"Peachy." — Wes Anderzine
"Lovely." — Graham Smith
"Rad." — Julia Wheeler
 

My name is David Klinker and I'd love your help to create a series of original screen printed posters. Water-based inks on 100% recycled paper, typeset in Akzidenz Grotesk medium, made in the USA.

I designed one poster per movie for all eight of Wes Anderson's feature films, from Bottle Rocket to his latest, The Grand Budapest Hotel. Each 18" x 24" poster depicts a different character from each film, in a style that will appeal to fans of minimalist Swiss and International Style graphic design.

These will be printed using traditional silkscreening techniques in Ypsilanti, Michigan, on 100% recycled Speckletone 100# paper from French Paper Company, which is produced under 100% hydropower in Niles, Michigan.


The prints

1 Bottle Rocket
2 Rushmore
3 The Royal Tenenbaums
4 The Life Aquatic
5 The Darjeeling Limited
6 Fantastic Mr. Fox
7 Moonrise Kingdom
8 The Grand Budapest Hotel

The paper

From frenchpaper.com: "Family-owned for five generations, the French Paper Company is one of the smallest paper mills in America. Way back in 1955, we created Speckletone (the first ever recycled sheet with visible flecks and shives). Recycled papers, like Speckletone, require no trees to be cut down, and we use virgin pulp only from approved sources like FSC. We generate 100% of our own electricity needs. We've done so since 1922 when our clean hydropower generator was built on-site."

Don't keep it a secret

I can only do this with your help. Please spread the word about this project on Twitter (follow me @swiss_anderson), share on Facebook, and post on any blogs you come across. Images of each print are posted on my Tumblr for you to share.

This fan-made labor of love is not affiliated with anything that would make it quote-unquote official.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge is reaching the funding goal.

I have a solid amount of experience working with the printers and great care is taken to make sure each print is of the highest quality. The inks are meticulously mixed to match carefully chosen Pantone colors. Although the silkscreen process leads to tiny imperfections, this is part of what makes each print unique.

The printer aims to complete orders in 2-3 weeks. Once I have the prints, delivery to customers in the US should take no more than 1 week (2-3 weeks for international orders). I expect all orders to be delivered within 6-7 weeks of the end of the funding period.
