Jeremy Saunders

If you have walked into an Australian cinema within the last five years, there is a good chance you have seen the work of Jeremy Saunders.

Saunders has designed more than 100 movie posters, his work accounting for a huge chunk of the local industry’s marketing images – including the key art for Australians films

Saunders was born in England and spent the good part of his 20s drifting between occupations, dabbling in music retail, human resources, recruitment and other jobs. Then one day the winds of change blew and fate delivered his destiny in the form of…a bent copy of Adobe Photoshop. “Someone gave me a dodgy copy of Photoshop and the lights just turned on,” he says. “There didn’t seem to be any limitations to what you could do with it. Suddenly, at 29, I know what I wanted to do (and) I spent every evening for about six months just playing with it. ”Saunders writes “it isn’t a great exaggeration to say Abode saved my life.”

Towards the end of 2000 Saunders moved to Australia and cut his teeth as a web designer for a recruitment software company. One night he ventured out to a film event called Sounds of Seduction, where he met “people who knew people” and got his first gig as a key art designer.
