"Limbo is a wry and poignant observation of the refugee experience, set on a fictional remote Scottish island where a group of new arrivals await the results of their asylum claims. It centers on Omar (Amir El-Masry), a young Syrian musician who is burdened by his grandfather’s oud, which he has carried all the way from his homeland."
- Quoted From Focus Features' Limbo Website
Initially Big Picture was asked to create the movie trailer graphic cards for this project. I really like the tone and style of the film, it feels serious but funny in certain manner. But later on the client asked us to align the typography graphics with their key art in the pink text. Design frames below.
