Inspired by classic films, Storylines deconstructs and manipulates the colour of a film in order to represent each one in a fixed format as a passive design. The collection embodies the style, feel and original composition of the film and recreates its visual impact as an abstract colour palette on a high quality Dibond® printed medium.
Each piece is printed to CinemaScope dimensions to reflect the design inherent in the originating media. With an element of nostalgia, these contemporary pieces tell the story of a film through linier depictions of shades and hues of various colour.
Mounted on matt black Dibond® aluminium with Plexiglass, a finish guaranteeing optimum protection of the work while emphasising its colours and contrasts, each piece is available in three different sizes.
The designs can be adapted for use on a number of different mediums, such as fabric or glass. In addition, the film inspired colour palettes can be used individually to form the basis for further design concepts.
Storylines. The essence of a film.
Everyone has a favourite film. And everyone has a favourite Storyline. To look at a Storyline is to glimpse a film in its entirety. From the opening scenes to the closing credits. In the blink of an eye. The colour palette of the film – its very essence – is distilled and remade as a linear composition. All the drama, the vision, the tears, and the laughter in a beautiful and thought-provoking image.
It’s a cultural icon, a talking point, and of course – a wonderful gift. Each Storyline is the personal creation of Yasemin Richie, an inspirational designer known for her eclectic designs and empathy for the quirky and nostalgic.
Choose the Storyline that matches your style, your home, and your mood.
Creating a Storyline
A film is the sum of thousands of still images, passing the eye so quickly that they become a moving picture. Yasemin Richie extracts these frames as individual photographs, stretching and compressing each one into a thin line, and replacing them in sequence so that the moving image becomes still again. Storylines are printed in widescreen cinema dimensions on matt black Dibond® aluminium, and finished with Plexiglass to protect the work and enhance its colours.
Storylines are custom-made to order: choose from the series or commission a limited edition Storyline of your favourite film.
