Years ago I loved getting to go behind the scenes on 24, CSI, and other Hollywood productions to see how prop designers put Photoshop through its paces (shattering ribs, burning out cars, and more—all in a matter of minutes). In that vein, I really enjoyed this 99% Invisible interview with designer Annie Atkins:
When a new movie comes out, most of the praise goes to the director and the lead actors, but there are so many other people involved in a film, and a lot of them are designers. There are costume designers and set designers, but also graphic designers working behind the scenes on every single graphic object that you might need in a film. It’s Annie Atkins’s job to design them.
I think you’ll dig it, too.
