Cold Call is a 2020 short film by writer and director, Katherine Cronyn. This award-winning thriller stars Michael O’Neill as a brusque, fast-paced businessman who receives a gravely consequential phone call on his drive into work. It was a joy to have the opportunity to design the poster for the film. After reading the script, the one visual that stuck with me was that of the ubiquitous face of our devices. I contemplated how I might twist its familiar interface into an ominous display of the character’s harrowing emotional experience.
