The Assignment: Connery's last EON produced Bond.
The Solution:I wanted to focus on the strength and power of the star. Connery's image is the biggest of any litho to date and his menacing pose shows him at his cruellest best. I wanted to depict the films 2 great chases, the Mach 1 Mustang and Moon Buggy scenes and just focus on 3 co-stars. This keeps the design from getting too busy. The glowing diamonds behind the stars captures the spirit of the remarkable Robert McGinnis one sheet.
