These are the designs that the client went with, a modified version of direction 2 below. Originally I wanted to do a shoot with the talent based on the idea of spin the bottle but with a gun instead of a bottle. It was to speak to the love triangle between Raylan, Boyd and Ava. Working with the client brought us to a more graphic direction.
– JUSTIFIED – DIRECTION 02 –
This is the direction I originally wanted to have the shoot for. The concept was centered around the idea of spin the bottle, only the bottle would be replaced with a gun. I did the photography for these boards as well using myself as a stand in for the talent.

This direction was inspired by the phrase “oil and water don’t mix”.

With this direction I wanted to give the feeling of running from something, trying to escape.
– JUSTIFIED – DIRECTION 05 –
For this direction I just really wanted to do something hands on. I wanted to do some collage. All the type was designed, printed out and taped back together. I scanned in the new collage type and used that in the design.
– JUSTIFIED – DIRECTION 06 –
This direction was inspired by the phrase “where there’s smoke there’s fire”. I also worked in some film elements that have been used in Justified design packages before.
