Criterion designer extraordinaire Eric Skillman used a distinctive drawing style of his own devising for our release of Fassbinder’s Berlin Alexanderplatz (and blogged about it here and here). Sitting across from him in a meeting the other day, we noticed that his phone bears an image from The Steel Helmet that he’s given the same treatment—he had his file made into this skin here. If only he’d start a sideline in making these (he won’t); our mouths are watering at the possibilities.
