Game of Thrones Season 2 Poster


One of the best shows on TV at the moment has to be Game of Thrones. Based on the novels 'A Song of Ice and Fire' by George R.R Martin, Game of Thrones has won countless awards in the US. Here in the UK we have just seen Episode 9 of Season 2, which was one of the best hours worth of TV I think Ive ever witnessed. To celebrate the awesomeness of GoT I put together this poster which is heavily influenced by Saul Bass, one of my design heroes. It uses a combination of only 4 colours; black, white, yellow and blue in different strengths.

The arc of the story is based on the feuding families of the kingdom of Westeros, all vying for the right to call themselves King. The poster shows the current holder of the crown (King Joffrey) grasping on to his title as the numerous hands of his rivals try to snatch it away.

The crown depicts the main families sigils (Stag: Baratheon, Dragon: Targaryen, Lion: Lannisters & Direwolf: Starks) who are all at war with each other in the fight to sit on the Iron Throne.


The action is set against the backdrop of King's Landing, the castle that houses the King of Westeros.The poster is sized at 24 x 18 inches and printed on 170gsm satin paper in UV stable pigment inks so it’s resistant to fading from UV lightA limited number of copies will be available, please use the Paypal button below to purchase your order.
