Side project: Silver Screen Society.

Side Project: Silver Screen SocietySilver Screen Society is a project curated and maintained by graphic designers Trevor Basset and Brandon Schaefer. The idea is to honor the many stories told through the world of cinema by each month featuring a new film and inviting several creatives to create artwork based on their own unique interpretations.

Not only is it fascinating to see how those interpretations differ but also to see the various different styles of artwork. One piece can be 100% vector art and the next can be painted entirely by hand, so there's plenty of variety on show. Amongst the long list of contributors you can expect to see work from the likes of Luke Bott, Shed Labs, Timo Meyer and Jack Hughes, to name a few.

Here's a collection of some of our favourite pieces:
