A note from Pace Taylor on designing the poster for Voyagers
"I think good design comes out of a well researched appraisal of historical context for whatever it is you are designing for, otherwise the work won't be grounded. Being able to sift through the actual newspapers and postcards and even footage from the trio's time period gave me a great perspective to apply to the knowledge I had of the Art Deco movement for this modern retelling. I hope we found a happy marriage of the two periods!
Personally, I enjoy, and tend to prefer, inserting a hand-made aesthetic into my design work as I'm more of an illustrator than anything. So working with inspiration from this time frame was ideal as a lot of the work designers were doing then was handmade. This came across a lot in the French newspapers I looked through. You could see how much creative liberty and personality they got to put into the layouts. Every other typeface was different and they had these crazy angles going on a lot of the spreads. I loved it! However, even though I recreated a few of the typefaces by hand, I still created digital versions, and in doing so found myself caught between these two times, just like the viewers are with the film I think. As a designer, being given the opportunity to reference the rich historical imagery for Voyagers was an absolute thrill."
