London, England (PRWEB) September 25, 2014
Just over a month after Steel Mill Pictures and Magnolia Pictures released the award-winning film Filth on DVD and Blu-ray in the U.S., Ciara McAvoy’s traditionally illustrated Filth movie poster was awarded Outstanding Creative Design—over thousands of global entries—at the 44th Annual Creativity International Print & Packaging Design Awards.
McAvoy’s promotional poster for Filth, which captured the true essence of the film’s dark comedy, also captured the attention of the judges. Her win is an indication that the world of movie-campaign marketing still has a place for well-executed traditional illustration—a field often believed to be a dying art given the proliferation of photographic and digital imagery used in movie poster design in recent years.

Written and directed by Jon S. Baird (Cass) and based on the Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting) novel of the same name, Filth stars James McAvoy, who himself won Best Actor at the 2013 British Independent Film Awards (BIFA) and Jameson Empire Awards in 2014.
