Lasting a Lifetime

For this project I wanted to look into the influence of John Hughes films from the 1980’s and reproduce some of his posters used to advertise his films.

I was born in this era, and I have been fascinated with everything to do with it, especially the music, fashion and the movies which have probably been the biggest influences on my life to this day,  During this time there were big changes in the United Kingdom and times were changing for teenagers who finally got the outlets they wanted, life became more liberated for them.  I want to try and look into this youth culture in the 80s and see what it was like to be a teenager during this time.

My main objective of this project was to create either movie posters or recreate iconic images of that era using current technology.
