Las redes sociales lo han convertido en la nueva estrella del firmamento web. Es que el diseñador inglés Stephen Wildish tuvo la idea de hacer unos alfabetos donde cada letra coincidía con el nombre de una película de cine moderno. Así uno puede encontrar los alfabetos armados con filmes de los 60, 70, 80 y 90. Este poder de síntesis de convertir una película en una única imagen nos llevó a entrevistarlo, en forma exclusiva para Visualmente, para sumarlo a nuestra sección Minimalismo. Él dedica sus fines de semana para trabajar en este tipo de ideas, los llamados “Proyectos de viernes”.
1. How he came to an alphabet based on movies?

3. What was the criterion for selecting the characters?
I choose the ones that come across in the simplest way possible. In as fewer shapes and colours as I can

5. What is the picture that you like best? Why?
Weird Science, I love that film and it's a very good shot to work with ;)
6. Why did you choose the decades of the 60, 80 and 90?
I started with the 80s, the 90s followed on naturally, I chose the 60's though because of the amount of brilliant films there was to chose fro
7. You will make an alphabet of 70 movies?
