George Harrison, Living in the Material World


George Harrison, Living in the Material World will play at the New York Film Festival this October as part of the Main Slate. I had the distinct pleasure of working with Olivia Harrison designing this poster for the Martin Scorsesse directed documentary. I love this image of George Harrison. It's got just enough Beatles-era pop but at the same time transcends all that and goes right to that spiritual/metaphorical iconography we've come to associate with the man.

Mr. Miller, who took the photograph from which you made the poster?

Shelly SM said...

Beautiful poster! We just watched the film. Do you, by any chance, know how to find out what font is used for the closing credits of the film?

F Ron Miller said...

PRKL8R: The photo is by Robert Freeman and was taken as part of a photo session for "Help."

Shelly SM: Thanks for the kind words! I'm not sure about the typeface, alas. Though when I have an opportunity to see it again I'll do my best to follow up!
