Know the limits of photoba shing
Photobashing is a powerful tool for design, but I also think it’s beginning to dilute originality in film design because of the nature of the technique and its reliance on photos of existing designs. Using this approach saves time and the end result is very photographic (obviously), but if you don’t know how to design then you let the photos do all the work and you have little involvement in the process, which can lead to lazy design – or no design at all. Collaging photos taken off the internet should be the start of your image, not 95 per cent of it.
