Sorry to Bother You

Role: Graphic Designer (CA)

Production Designer: Jason Kisvarday
(Annapurna Pictures)

In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, black telemarketer Cassius Green discovers a magical key to professional success, which propels him into a macabre universe.

I worked with Production Designer Jason Kisvarday to create a huge array of graphics, from large scale (billboards, signage, storefront displays) to small (book covers, magazines, labels, and other hero prop graphics). The world in which this story takes place is stylized and surreal and extremely graphics-heavy; branding and marketing play a big part in the design. The goal was to create an alternate world with its own visual style.
