Jameson Empire Awards x Luke Drozd

Award season is well and truly upon us, and to celebrate the announcement of of the 2014 nominations for the Jameson Empire Awards, the Irish Whiskey company has done something rather cool. They’ve commissioned South London-based illustrator, Luke Drozd, to create a series of rather visually pleasing alternative film posters for each of the the shortlisted best actor nominees. The posters celebrate each nominated actors’ work, while referencing signature moments from each actor’s most recent film. The nominations include, Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years A Slave), James McAvoy (Filth), Leonardo DiCaprio (The Wolf Of Wall Street), Martin Freeman (The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug) and Tom Hanks (Captain Phillips).

The designer, Luke Drozd, is known for his for his hand drawn style and got his start creating gig posters. He’s since had exhibitions around the world, and had work presented on the covers of comics and apparel. Speaking of the collaboration, Drozd said:  ”I wanted to create a series of bold graphic posters which not only celebrate the best of film from the past year but also throws the focus back on the nominee. It’s also given me the excuse to re-watch their recent films for creative inspiration! I hope that the care, attention and craft lavished on the movies production is reflected in these pieces.”

Have a look at the posters below, they’re rather snazzy: Chiwetel Ejiofor_low  Leonardo Dicaprio_low Martin Freeman_low Tom Hanks_low- Alim Kheraj
