Apocalypse Now

Chelsea Peterson's Apocalypse Now film poster with greens, purples, and pinks and a dark cloud-like mass

Chelsea Peterson

This film poster represents the symbolism and messages of Apocalypse Now. The background texture and color exploding from behind the helicopter, a symbol of war, embodies Francis Ford Coppola’s focus on the confusion, violence, fear, and madness of the Vietnam War. The helicopter is hand drawn in a loose sketch style to convey the confusion on the ground in Vietnam and the typography, also hand drawn, is used as a parallel to the narrative voice-over throughout the film.
