Renoir: Father and Son / Painting and Cinema presents a rich and fascinating dialogue between painter Pierre­Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) and his son, filmmaker Jean Renoir (1894-1979).

In designing this suite of materials, our goal was to link the two men's work visually and freshly present the frequently misunderstood Pierre-Auguste's paintings. We used tight crops and bright colors to juxtapose Jean's Technicolor films with the lush textures of his father's impressionist paintings. Typography took inspiration from the quirkily typeset movie posters of the younger Renoir's films. The logotype involved tracing over the typeface Bluu to introduce intentional imperfections and evidence of the hand.
