Project Review: The Taking of Pelham 123: 2009

A Simple Logo built using train-like siding and rivets.

An alternate 3D Logo built for train Materials.

A re-Creation of the original concept for the 70's version of the film.

Using the same 3D Model to achieve a posterized look of the train.

The Realistic Render of the Train for the One Sheet Ideas.

The Taking of Pelham 123

Client: Columbia Pictures via The Cimarron Group.
Art Director: Joseph Stamper.
Project Date: Spring 2008.

A small 3D job for the Print Department was to design elements for the Taking of Pelham 123 Posters. For the re-make the client wanted us to re-vision the old poster from the 70's with the text superimposed over the train. Always a rush in Print-Department design work, I had less than a day to build out the exact subway train used in the film. I had already built the wheels for another project so I focused on the body design and textures.

We also did a few loose logos made out of train parts as well. A fun exercise that did not win the finish.

Cheers, THOM
