A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night
Ana Lily Amirpour's 2014 film A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night gained critical acclaim and was invited to numerous film festivals, including the Sundance Film Festival. When the film was invited to the Jeonju International Film Festival, it gained recognition in Korea and created a significant buzz. In anticipation of the film's release, I designed a special poster for the film festival and an exhibition, as well as a Korean translation of the graphic novel of the same name, which was written by the director.
The special poster features sentences that depict scenes from the movie, in a manner befitting the film's unique title. In the background, the girl, the film's protagonist, appears as if flying while riding a skateboard, which is a significant and beautiful scene in the film. Amirpour, who is a lifelong skater, became the stand-in for the skateboarding sequences in the film, resulting in her merging with the main character.
In addition to the film, she released a spin-off graphic novel that tells more of the story, and the Korean translation of this graphic novel was published after the film's release in Korea. I was responsible for book design, creating a new cover, and redesigning the dialogues and graphic effects to suit the Korean audience.
