Cinema Paradiso (Student Work)

Derrick Lin


Designed by Nitin Budhiraja, Savannah College of Art and Design, United States.

Cinema paradiso is a nostalgic film that evokes a feeling of love and passion through the bonds that the characters share and the simple lifestyles of Sicilians. The music is a masterpeice in its own right, and so this package takes parts of the movie as key points to garner a sense of warm antiquity.

Treatment of regular office supply paper, a regular tin film holder can, and other materials, helped in communicating the message across to the audience. Various unconventional methods were incorporated to achieve the desired aged look for the materials (including tea water, coffee and heat sources to name a few.)

Typography is researched and the elements developed with great detail to originality and authenticity.
