FIDM Graphic Design/Entertainment Portfolios Offer Unique Concepts, Clever Copy and Beautiful Design Details

We’re always excited to see how students who have earned their Graphic Design/Entertainment degree at FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising reinterpret movie marketing in their portfolios.

FIDM Graphic Design Students are constantly finding inventive ways to market films, television shows and video games. Whether they are developing  theatrical key art or interactive online marketing concepts, FIDM Students learn the value of research and conceptual thinking first and foremost.

“The visual field of Graphic Design is being blown wide open, and FIDM has responded,” says FIDM Graphic Design Department Director Steve Reaves. “We have brought together the best Graphic Designers in entertainment and key art design to teach our classes with the same inside knowledge and expertise that have put FIDM on the map.”

Below, check out five inspiring portfolios by recent Graphic Design/Entertainment grads by Kristen Baquerizo, Adabel Sarhad, Camille Sigler, Rebecca Wheatman and Joseph Macri. Each book offers unique qualities and includes beautiful title designs, photo rendering and visually compelling design details.

Don’t miss Baquerizo’s clever taglines (she wrote all of her own copy lines) throughout her portfolio, and interesting interactive marketing concepts for the creepy post-apocalyptic zombie television series “Walking Dead.”
