Neil Kellerhouse is the founder of an L.A. based graphic design firm, Kellerhouse, Inc., whose work in film print packaging and one-sheet design has become increasingly recognizable in the past five years.
His work for the Criterion Collection features an array of custom lettering that is both modern and organic. The lettering for Lars von Trier’s Antichrist, for example, captures the violent themes of the film while incorporating elements of nature, such as small branches and flowers. Kellerhouse pairs his coarse, woodsy lettering with Electra Cursive Display, nicely offsetting chaos with control.
Kellerhouse also created a simpler, handwritten version, and wordmarks to pair with close-up photographs.
