Version 1 Version 2 Version 3 Final Poster

Frozen’s poster was created by British designer Paul Wilson, whose Denmark-based company Yellow1 has produced artwork for films including Lars von Trier’s The Five Obstructions (for which he won Danish Poster 2003), Guy Ritchie’s Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Jonathan Glazer’s Sexy Beast and Thomas Vinterberg’s It’s All About Love

“ With all of the visuals we tried I was keen to produce a feeling of isolation and solitude, while flavouring them with a surreal and unnerving character.”

I utilised cold colours throughout and felt that maintaining space was key to achieving the unnerving dramatic impact we wanted. Searching was also an underlying theme that I felt was important.

“ With version 3, I made a huge block of ice (30cm2) and scanned it and made it into the sky to add a surreal and cold ambience – I like the feel that the poster itself was “frozen” on inspection.”

“ The lead actress Shirley Henderson’s reflection with the red coat is a nice narrative. Red was a key element in the visual amongst the cold hues and the way she looks out into an infinite skyline with all that space around her feels really eerie.”
