Stock imagery brand Shutterstock returned this year to give pop-art makeovers to movie posters of this year’s Oscar nominees. The 2020 collection marks the eighth year of the exercise from the company's in-house design team. It features “Ford v Ferrari” remade in the style of Takashi Murakami, by Alice Lee; Thanh Nguyen brought a Yayoi Kusama-inspired sensibility to “Jojo Rabbit”; Ian Calleja channeled David Hockey for “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”; Nicole Dai looked to Saul Bass for her take on “Parasite”; JC Moreno brought David Carson’s frantic graphics to "1917"; Alex Bodin imparted Thierry Guetta’s street-art aesthetic to “The Irishman”;  Robert Indiana inspired Flo Lau’s rendering for “Marriage Story”; Alex Clem looked to Brit-pop artist Pauline Boty for “Little Women” and Jackelyne Castillo brought Daniel Norris’ grit to “Joker.”

“From depressed divorcées and supportive sisters to action heroes and comic book villains, this year’s nominated films provide a surplus of inspiration for our designers to create this unique poster series,” said Mike McCabe, VP-creative at Shutterstock in a statement. “Not only does this tradition serve as a fun exercise for our creative team to explore the depth of the Shutterstock collection as a customer, but it also demonstrates the unique ways in which the incredible artwork of our contributor community can be recombined to create something new.”
