Graphic Design for Film & Television

When most people think about graphic design jobs, they envision working in marketing or advertising, doing websites, logos, and creating promotional materials for print or digital.

Being a graphic designer for film and television, I would work on everything from props to set pieces, to the typeset on a dove tail banner. A graphic designer on a TV or film production is responsible for creating any graphic pieces outlined in the script. They also create promotional materials, like movie posters and digital content.

In my case working with Paramount, Touchstone, and Warner Brothers on multiple films I entered the set design department as an independent contractor and answered to the set designer. I worked remotely which was really something in the 2000's. I study historical periods to ensure the designs that are created are as real as possible. The idea is to achieve total immersion for the audience and for the actors on set, who use these prop pieces to get into character.

In a nutshell it's about moving the plot forward, and creating a compelling atmosphere through carefully designed visual solutions. 

Graphic Design work for film, includes The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001), Finding Forrester (2000), The Curse of the Jade Scorpion (2001) for a full list of production work nancytranter.com
