Little White Lies

Check out the winning entries from our Beautiful Boy creative brief

We were blown away by the excellent entries for our latest competition.

To celebrate the release of Felix van Groeningen’s Beautiful Boy, we asked you to create an illustrated portrait of the film’s stars, Timothée Chalamet or Steve Carell.

Beautiful Boy, which is released in UK cinemas on Friday 18 January, is based on the remarkable true story of Nic Sheff, a teenage drug addict, who faces up to his addiction with the help of his father David.

Our designers have now chosen the overall winner along with five runners-up. We were blown away by the high standard of entries, the best of which will be exhibited at London’s Curzon Soho from 17 January. Check them out below, and look out for another creative brief soon!
