In december 2015 US discount retailer Target sold an exclusive version of John Williams’ The Force Awakens score. And when I was asked to create custom covers in the same style for the rest of the saga, well, I couldn’t say no. But first I had to recreate the Target cover to get rid of that ugly sticker. And also, to prepare myself a universal template that I could use for previous and future* episodes.
This request came right in the middle of working on another series, but I figured a little change won’t hurt. It keeps your creative spark on fire. So I was happily changing texts and titles and was already about to upload the covers, when I realised that every cover is meant to feature different characters within the logo. D’oh!
It took me half a day to find appropriate (and large enough) posters which I could use to cut out important characters or scenes. This whole thing was far more demanding than I had thought in the first place. And that’s also the reason why I devoted a separate post to it.
There was demand for artworks in that style that could be used with this year’s Remastered releases. That’s why I’ve decided (4 months later…) to also offer the following edited versions.
