Blade Runner 2049's beautiful Screen Graphics and UI Design

Starting off our week here on Abduzeedo with the work of Andrew Popplestone on his work on the outstanding Blade Runner 2049. More precisely on his work (and cie) as creative director on the Screen Graphics & UI design, make sure to give a watch to the videos. Andrew is a creative director, titles designer and concept artist based in London, UK. If you haven't watched the movie yet, this feature won't reveal any spoilers. Tapped to create screen graphics for Blade Runner 2049, the sequel to Ridley Scott’s iconic film, Territory Studio joined the art department in the very early stages of production. We worked closely with Director Denis Villeneuve and Supervising Art Director Paul Inglis to support storybeats, performance and context. Adopting an experimental approach, the team set out to create highly original screens. Working across 15 sets, we delivered over 100 assets for on set playback, also driving the design direction for those concepts delivered to post.

Behind the Art Direction & Brand Identity of Blade Runner 2049

Behind the Art Direction & Brand Identity of Blade Runner 2049

Seriously bummed that the movie Blade Runner 2049 didn't perform well as expected. With a settlement of a high score from most well-known movie blogs and critics out there but still wasn't enough. On the other hand, I was always intrigued by the team who collaborated on the art direction & whole brand identity; behind such a great movie and at this scale as well. We are taking a look at Stanley Sun and his team over at Concept Arts Studios. Stanley Sun is working at Concept Arts Studios as their Senior Art Director. You should definitely check out his Behance for more movie projects like Dunkirk, Kong: Skull Island and more. Over the past 16 months we designed the movie logo, directed photoshoot concepts, and spent countless hours in Photoshop creating keyarts for marketing. Ranging from print materials like magazines and movie posters to digital/social sharable contents like Penn Station motion wall takeover and Snapchat. Hope you like it!
