Here is a Casino Royale poster concept I came up with. This is still one of my favourite James Bond films to date, as I thought it was a brilliant reinvention of the character. I thought the Bond series had become a bit redundant during the Brosnan years. Daniel Craig is absolutely my favourite incarnation of Flemming’s famous secret agent. He just comes across as more believable, despite the fact that he’s playing this superhuman character.
I wanted to do a Casino Royale poster that would incorporate playing card symbols. This lead me towards a red colour palette for the background, which worked well with the blood red spatter effect I wanted to use. Bond is front and centre, pointing his gun towards us. The secondary characters and the card signs surround him in a purple red haze, to give a sense of danger and mystery. I’m quite pleased with this design.
