Graphic Design
​Annie Atkins
(UK)
When Wes Anderson set about creating the extraordinarily detailed world of The Grand Budapest Hotel, he called on Annie Atkins. The Welsh graphic designer has carved out a niche for herself working on TV dramas and feature films from The Tudors to Steven Spielberg’s upcoming Cold War thriller.
Annie went to Film School in Dublin after her design degree and the combination of these experiences prepared her perfectly for life on set. At Here 2015 we learnt that the process behind The Grand Budapest Hotel was especially immersive, discussing in her talk the process behind creating everything in scene, from stamps to signage, escape maps to cake boxes.
