Maybe you don’t know Annie Atkins and have never heard her name, but you’ve certainly seen one of her works at least once in your life. Annie, in fact, is a graphic designer for the cinema, i.e. she creates all the graphics, the writing, the signs, the fake documents and some objects that appear in films.
For example, she is the one who oversaw the creation of all the parchments and written pages that appear in the first season of The Tudors, and she is always the hand behind all the beautiful signs and graphics of Grand Budapest Hotel, such as the delicious pink boxes of Mendl’s pastry shop.
Well, due to the lockdown and the health crisis, Annie Atkins’ work has temporarily stopped, but not her creative vein. In fact, to catch a smile from all her Instagram followers she decided to start the Advice in a pandemic project. Almost every day Annie makes posters, whose style recalls that of the posters published during the Second World War, with some small advice, very often ironic, suggested by the followers themselves.
In addition, the artist has stated that once she has produced a large number of posters she will select some of them to make screen prints for sale. The proceeds will then be donated to the hospice where her mother received all the necessary care.
