The House of Lannister

Game of Thrones Film Poster Design

The latest in my Game of Thrones film poster designs features the infamous Lannister family. During the time period in which the show takes place, they are one of the wealthiest families in the land and used their financial influence to take the Iron Throne. The Lannisters are led by the patriarch, Tywin who had three children which are in the middle row. The bottom row of three younger children are the offspring of Cersei, Tywin’s only daughter.

I tried to achieve a vintage style feel to the movie poster design by using hard colours, old print fonts, and texture overlays to make the paper seem as if it was worn down. Taking stills of the various characters throughout the show, I filtered them until their features were softer and resembled more of a cartoon. The cartoon effect worked better on some than it did others, but aside from that, I think it turned out pretty well.
