This is England DVD Design

For a college project we had to re-design a DVD case for the film ‘This is England’, a gritty film surrounding the lives of young people in the 1980’s. I investigated my local area to see what made Britain so British so I could incorporate it in my work. Brick work, buildings, road signs, grey clouds and pigeons all came to mind. Using my camera I captured images that would be useful for research as well as used in the final product. The colours had to seem dull and grey to represent the time period and British weather but I had to make sure the cover was still attractive if people were to buy it.
