Alternative poster art: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri
Posted 5 years ago and submitted by Martin Beckett | Share link:

I recently completed this piece for Posterspy to celebrate the opening of the film ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri’.
In researching the piece I read a review and the standout sound bite read ‘A Force of Nature’, which I thought a brilliant metaphor for the character of Mildred Hayes. I wanted to reflect this sentiment in the wide open feel of the image, with the billboards standing out, and Chief Willoughby and Officer Dixon featuring small in the space with Mildred the dominant force of nature, a storm in the brewing.

“Martin designed, illustrated and formatted five books covers for me (front and full covers). He also completed a logo redesign. His ideas were imaginative and practical, resulting in a cohesive set of covers that I couldn’t have envisaged myself. Throughout the process, he was extremely responsive and helpful, and always willing to make tweaks to the designs as requested. I’ll definitely be using Martin’s services again in the future."
