Accidentally Wes Anderson Takes You on a Visual Adventure

There are a handful of directors whose films are instantly recognizable in their own distinct style. Wes Anderson is one of these few. His films, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic, and Moonrise Kingdom to name a few, all share charismatic similarities. There’s the excessive use of the Futura font in things such as the film’s title, building signs, and just about anything else with words.

His color palette is also very distinct. Anderson has an obsession with yellow and red with blues in the mix on occasion. His sets are usually highly saturated with these colors. Another more recognizable style element is the lovely use of symmetry whether in featuring buildings or characters. Accidentally Wes Anderson is a collection of photographs and narratives of places and things that look like they were plucked straight out of the worlds of the famed filmmaker.
