Star Trek Axanar Blu-Ray Poster Artwork

Postby The Eye of Error » Fri Feb 27, 2015 4:31 pm

Recently Robert Meyer Burnett, Alec Peters and Christian Gossett hosted a contest on Facebook for a donor to contribute designs that would become the cover of the Blu-ray disc. Robert was looking for more of a Criterion Collection look for the art and I jumped at the chance to participate.

All in all I entered 13 designs in a variety of styles and ultimately won after a bout of strong competition.

I felt like sharing them here:

Excellent job & congratulations! I like the retro look to them all. The winning entry was my favorite of them, closely followed by the first one you posted.

So do you get any special perk for having the winning entry, like a picture with the cast on the bridge or a set of Starcrafts' Axanar line of models? :)

Thanks man :)

I get a bunch of copies of the blu-ray once it's released, some posters and a lot of Nerd Cred :P

Hopefully it'll lead to more work for the Axanar project, I would love that.

Personally I liked the first one best- but the winning submission came in second.

All in all- well done! And Congrats!

Thanks Guys!

This is about as close as I will get to working on anything officially Trek related so I felt thrilled to design it. :P

I've seen several of your builds. You've got plenty of cred, man

I missed this post somehow.

Love, love, love all of them. Any chance of prints? I believe in supporting artists - especially ones as good as you.
If I remember correctly, it worked the last time we did this. Unless it didn't.

Thanks man!

There will be high-quality poster prints available in the donor store for the movie eventually. They will be Mondo level printing quality.

I'm also designing all the DVD / Blu-Ray case artwork for "Prelude to Axanar" and eventually the Axanar feature. Prelude should be off to the printers within 2 weeks.
