Design: Let’s Get Lost

Let’s Get Lost is a 1988 documentary about the troubled life and death of jazz trumpeter Chet Baker, by film maker Bruce Weber. A series of posters were created to show how cool and handsome the young Baker was, juxtaposed with the years of alcohol and herion abuse that destroyed Chet’s looks and career and led to his mysterious death at the age of 59. The French poster used the same graphic style but chose to show Baker in his final ravaged years – as does the American re-release and LP art work. Beautiful design with light blue type and destroyed paper – this is a wonderful series for an interesting movie.
