Family Affair

Menu designs for This Happy Breed, the third film in the boxed set David Lean Directs Noël Coward. The master for This Happy Breed is simply beautiful and about as sensitive a rendering of color as one would expect from The Criterion Collection. Though you may detect a quality shift for a couple of the images on these menus here. That's an affect of the design process. Those stills weren't available to me at the time the menus were designed, so I worked with place-holder images knowing they'd be traded-out once the work left my desk. Menus, by the way, are often designed in advance of the packaging (though not the covers) due to the time required to produce the discs.
