" I just want to be perfect." - Nina
I was so pleased when contacted by MONDO to work together on a poster for Darren Aronofsky's BLACK SWAN. Once I read the title my brain immediately became flooded with ideas, as such a film is so visually stunning - it allows for many creative avenues to be explored. This concept came to me almost right off the bat.
BLACK SWAN really encompasses the true feeling of someone endlessly trying to achieve perfection and the negative consequences it can result in. It's such a great example of that. The film does an amazing job at capturing beauty and darkness and it was my goal to show that in this poster. I wanted to make something that looked elegant on the surface but upon looking deeper there lied something crooked and dark and disjointed, literally.
