Poster Design Notes
Don’t you, forget about me.
There’s certain movies than can always bring you back to a very specific point in your life. Breakfast Club is one of them for me. Early 20s, not much direction, going out late with my friends, and every night I’d crash on my buddy’s couch and throw in Breakfast Club on VHS. Always quotable, never forgettable.
Screws fall out all the time, the world’s an imperfect place.
This poster is also kind of an homage to the Rage Against the Machine album cover for “The Battle of Los Angeles”. Like Rage, the Breakfast Club was all about rejection of the status quo. Question authority, don’t let others define you and know your enemy. You could build this statue of John Bender right now and have thousands of 80’s kids make a pilgrimage to see it every year.
In the simplest of terms, in the most convenient definitions.
All you need for a group of kids with nothing in common to get along, is to just give them a common enemy. The same would work for all of humanity. If you want peace on earth, we just need a race of aliens to come down and put the entire planet in detention. We would all be dancing on tables and complaining about our parents together in no time.
