Amelia Earhart Flies the Night Sky

Here’s an interesting assignment I did for Seattle Metropolitan a few months back about Hilary Swank in the Amelia Earhart biopic. The fab Art Director, Benjamen Purvis wanted an image reminiscent of vintage aviation posters, such as the images below. Another request was to incorporate a photo of the real Amelia Earhart somewhere in the composition.

The inspiration:

In the end, the Art Director preferred a version with a less prominent frame which would work better with the “Mudroom” logo. Here’s the printed piece. The headline had a darker tone than I had anticipated.
