Full Line-Up of Panels for How to Target the Eye!

We are now proud to announce all the panels that will take place during our summit on June 18th and 19th. The guests that will participate in each panel will be revealed Friday, May 28th.

June 18th 

LEARNING FROM THE PAST – ON THE SUSTAINABILITY OF DESIGN

Classic film designs have a cult following today. There are archives, exhibitions, columns, galleries, auctions, podcasts. Where does this interest come from? What is it that went out of fashion but not out of style? What can we learn from people like Saul Bass, Antonio Fernández Reboiro, Jerzy Flisak, Hans Hillmann? 

ACT LOCAL – WHAT CAN CINEMAS DO?

For cinemas today, it’s not enough to hope for a good trailer, wait for a good poster, and boost the concession sales. Cinemas need to know and engage with their specific audiences. They can build communities, share news and create experiences. Can good design give them the edge? 

ON THE CHALLENGES OF DIGITAL MARKETING

How to win the battle for attention in the web’s vast media landscape and in social media’s closed environments is a crucial question for any modern campaign. How much is this a design problem? How can we keep a visual idea alive and consistent in so many different modes of presentation? And how far is radical design today a technological or a budget question? 

June 19th

HANS HILLMANN – A GARDENER IN A CINEMA DESERT

A discussion around Hans Hillmann (1925-2014), the single most important German graphic designer working for the film industry. He designed hundreds of film posters and introduced many essential classics from Buñuel to Sternberg, from Lubitsch to Eisenstein, to a post-war German audience. His work never advertises production values but develops seductive and witty visual narratives that intensify in meaning after the films. 

CASE STUDY WITH VASILIS MARMATAKIS

This panel aims to present, in great detail, Vasilis’ truly innovative campaigns and designs for cinema releases. We will discuss the genesis of his designs, how the visual ideas were rooted in the films, talk about the challenges and setbacks, and what can be learned for future works and campaigns.

HANS HILLMANN – A GARDENER IN A CINEMA DESERT (A TRIBUTE)

Hans Hillmann (1925-2014) was the single most important German graphic designer working for the film industry. He designed hundreds of posters and introduced many essential classics from Buñuel to Sternberg, from Lubitsch zu Eisenstein, to a post-war German audience. His work never advertises production values but develops seductive and witty visual narratives that intensify in meaning after the films. Hillmann once said that, at the time he started, Germany was a “cinema desert”. His posters are a patient gardener’s work, planting and watering a playful communication with the audience that still keeps growing. 

We are very proud to announce this tribute session that will take place during our summit, and where guests will discuss the work of this great artist. Confirmed presences at this panel are the ones of Jens Müller and Sam Smith. 

Jens Müller, born in 1982, studied communication design in Düsseldorf. He then founded his own design studio and worked for a wide variety of clients from the worlds of culture and business. For Deutsche Post, he has realized about a dozen special stamps since 2007, which have been printed in editions of millions. Together with Karen Weiland-Adams, he won the renowned corporate design competition of Kieler Woche in 2013. Since 2019, he has been running the design studio vista in Düsseldorf together with Katharina Sussek and Andreas Magino. In addition to his work as a designer, he researches the history of international graphic design and is the author of highly regarded reference books, including bestsellers such as “Lufthansa+Graphic Design,” “Logo Modernism” and “The History of Graphic Design.” He has published several times on the work of Hans Hillmann, most recently the book “Moving Pictures. The Complete Film Posters of Hans Hillmann” (Optik Books, 2021). Jens Müller also teaches regularly at the Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences and Arts/Peter Behrens School of Arts and at the Design Department of the Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts. 

Sam Smith– aka Sam’s Myth– is a graphic artist, musician, and poster enthusiast who for 13 years has strived to create iconic poster designs. Inspired by the great Cuban, Polish, Czech, and German poster artists of the 20th century, he has created theatrical posters for Janus Films, IFCFilms, Oscilloscope, Grasshopper Film, and A24, as well as numerous cover designs for The Criterion Collection including the cult favorite HOUSE (Nobuhiko Obayashi, 1977). Sam also creates album covers, editorial illustrations, childrens illustrations, and screenprints for the Belcourt Theatre, the arthouse cinema in his hometown of Nashville, TN where he lives and works. These collectible prints have celebrated classic films and personal favorites, as well as director series including retrospectives on Hitchcock, Kurosawa, Harryhausen, and Bresson. An avid collector of posters and soundtrack LPs, Sam created the radio program OST for a local station and co-hosted The Poster Boys podcast, a monthly program devoted to poster design history and film poster artists. Sam intermittently performs live as a drummer with Ben Folds, as well as other artists and groups. When not busy with any of these things, Sam enjoys film writing, traveling, cartooning, photography, disc golf, and Mario Kart
