Sorry to Bother You
Feature Film | (2018) | IMDb
Role: Graphic Designer CA
Dir. Boots Riley
Production Designer: Jason Kisvarday
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, with branding and marketing playing a big part in the design. The goal was to create a world with its own visual style.
Filmed in Oakland
Premiered at Sundance Film Festival
