Irene Jacob by June Westmore

Irene Jacob, (born 15 July 1966) is a French-born Swiss actress considered one of the preeminent French actresses of her generation. She is the star of Red by Kieslowski (1994) and The Double Life of Veronique (1991). There are really not a lot of photos of her circulating the web but we managed to dig this portrait by June Westmore, undated.

Krzysztof Kieslowski original film posters

One could say I’m very interested in design, especially film posters, which I consider, are at times, works of art in their own right.

I think Poland shines in this department. I have not examined the reasons why but I always find their visual work pretty impressive. Let’s take these 3 film posters for Krzysztof Kieslowski’s movies; they represent what was considered a good marketing strategy at the time, what the public thought was an interesting image to look at and the originality of the artist Andrzej Pagowski.
Pagowski is born in 1953 in Warsaw and started as a cartoonist and book designer while creating his advertising agency “Studio P”.
