Creative Review interviews Annie Atkins, the designer responsible for all the graphic elements in The Grand Budapest Hotel. Here’s how she got the job:
I’d been drawing some graphics for Laika’s new animated feature The Boxtrolls (due out in September), and a designer at the studio had recommended me to Wes (Nelson Lowry, who had designed [The Fantastic] Mr Fox). He’d tried to give me some warning, I think, by emailing me with the line “Something wicked your way comes…” but to be honest I had no idea what he’d meant, or exactly how wicked it was going to be!
