Olly Moss's Academy Awards Poster Showcases 85 Years of Oscars

In order to reflect each best picture winner from the 85 years of the storied Academy Awards, graphic designer Olly Moss has reimagined the Oscar statuette. Calling it one of the hardest works he’s tackled to date, subtle design cues include The Artist reflected in black and white, The Deer Hunter with an homage to Russian roulette, Titanic placed on the hull of a ship and more. In speaking about the process Moss commented, “It’s all just drawn with a Wacom in Photoshop. I made standard templates for male/female/child and then drew the extra details over the top. The statuette template I made was based on the huge statue they wheel out for the ceremony every year. It’s a little more refined than the award so it withstood a bit more detail/customization. I was working 16 hour days for about three weeks solid. I was on schedule before my computer died in mid January, which ballsed things up a tad.” Moss said the hardest film to come up with an idea for was 1947-winner Gentleman’s Agreement. “If you haven’t seen it, it’s a film about a man disguising himself as a Jew to experience/uncover prejudice. Quite a hard thing to sum up sensitively on a 2” tall statue.”
