‘The Nickel Hopper’ Poster

A poster designed for GSA Film Festival 2020. ‘The Nickel Hopper’ (1926) is a short silent comedy film starring Mabel Normand. The film portrays the life of a young ‘taxi dancer’ attempting to become financially emancipated from her controlling father. My poster refers to the dancing imagery in the film, while suggesting some of her independence through a commanding stance.
