New Cyber Café packaging + branded items

For this new post I have prepared a packaging for The Cyber Caffee.

This Caffee doesn’t really exist, but if it did this would be their packaging.

For anything branded the style of items should be consistent. In this case I am presenting it should be the same.

The colours are more around grey scale rather something summery as it would go well with the theme.

The mood of the packaging is bit robotic and in style of “The Metropolis” movie I have done in one of the earlier posts. You can check that if you click HERE.

The Project was produced by using Adobe Illustrator for the logo creation and Adobe Photoshop for the rest.

In this case I wanted the robot the robot’s head to indicate danger of being constantly watch. To make it not so threatening I used coffee mug instead of his mouth.

In this case I am humanising the robot making him to drink coffee and eat chocolate.

In this case the design is very simple, but sometimes that is the best. I have used a chip as the main symbol.

Overall I am happy with this work as it reflects current culture.

Below you can the the used illustrations in more detail.

METROPOLIS Science Fiction Movie Poster

For this post I wanted to create a poster for science fiction movie. I found this tutorial on YouTube so I decided to follow it. It is not the same as the original, but I dried my best.

I am adding a link on YouTube so you can see for yourselves.

Metropolis, German silent film, released in 1927, featuring director Fritz Lang’s vision of a grim futuristic society and containing some of the most impressive images in film history.

The great future city of Metropolis in the film is inhabited by two distinct classes: the industrialists live off the fat of the land, supported by the workers who live under the city and endure a bare-bones existence of backbreaking work. The story concerns a forbidden love between Freder (played by Gustav Fröhlich), a young man from the industrialist class, and Maria (Brigitte Helm), an activist who preaches against the divide between the two classes. The subterfuge and deceit involving a robot duplicate of Maria culminate in a revolution that quickly spells disaster for all involved.

Despite advances in film making technology, no other film has surpassed Metropolis in terms of its impact on production design. Its influence can be seen in many subsequent science fiction films, including Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner (1982) and Terry Gilliam’s Brazil (1985). Lang’s eye for magnificent set pieces and special effects resulted in memorable images, notably the immense skyscrapers that dominate the skyline of Metropolis and the scenes in which the robot takes on Maria’s features.(From left) Alfred Abel, Brigitte Helm, and Rudolf Klein-Rogge, in Metropolis, directed by Fritz Lang, 1927.From a private collectionMetropolisBrigitte Helm in Metropolis (1927), directed by Fritz Lang.From a private collection

Metropolis was not a success in its initial German release. It was cut by about a quarter from its original length of 153 minutes for its American release and a German release. These shortened versions were further reedited many times over the decades, and various versions exist in different countries. For example, in 1984 an 87-minute print was released with a rock sound track constructed by composer Giorgio Moroder. The original 1927 release print seemed lost forever, but in 2008 a deteriorated but nearly complete print that ran 147 minutes was discovered in the archives of the Museum of Cinema in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After several months of restoration in Germany, the reconstructed Metropolis had its first showing at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2010.

One more version.
