when asked about his approach to poster design philippe told designboom:

 

‘I try to articulate concept, message, aesthetic, emotion, and strength in a single image. the challenge is to be persuasive: like an actor who convinces the audience to suspend disbelief. he has to interpret his role so vividly that he and his character become one.’
