I’ve been playing with James Bond titles in the weekly assignments, so I had the idea to rework a movie poster. I googled for examples and found a site with loads. There’s quite a variety there, so I also did an image search for golden camera to let that help guide my choice. The image and poster I used were a natural match. I’m not sure if the poster is official, but it appears to be a product of Matt Raubenheimer. I found out he was on Twitter, so I asked for his permission to remix his work and he said “Yes” within minutes.
Yes that is one of mine. Go for it! And do let me know what you do with it.

The camera shutter icon came from a stock photo site. I had to redo the title, so I went looking for an easy way to get that metallic look on the typeface. I went with this tutorial and used a color overlay to make it gold. I should have played with the settings more, and perhaps the font as well, because it looks way too much like a MS WordArt horror. Even a flat gold color would have been better – more legible and less distracting. I left it as is for the purposes of critique.
