Behind the Design: The Grand Budapest Hotel

Wes Anderson’s films are always a visual delight, with iconic characters, quirky locations, and alternate realities. Every detail in the inventive sets is meticulously considered, especially color choice and typography.

So we were excited to find this interview with the film’s lead graphic designer Annie Atkins over at CreativeReview. She designed every detail, from the Zubrowkan banknotes to the hotel sign.

Then, we stumbled across this Tumblr that pairs scenes from his movies with a corresponding color palette—the perfect way to infuse your home with those signature saturated hues.

Oh, and this mesmerizing supercut of the use of symmetry in his films.

What can we say? It’s been a Wes kind of week.
