La La Land a must-see for designers


“La La Land,” the 2016 musical film directed by Damien Chazelle, is not just a captivating love story set to a melodic soundtrack. It’s also a visual feast that offers invaluable inspiration to designers of all types. “La La Land” is a must-watch for all designers.

Stunning Color Palette

One of the most striking aspects of “La La Land” is its use of colour. The film employs a vibrant and daring colour palette that directly influences the mood of each scene. The vivid hues of costumes set designs, and lighting creates a dreamlike atmosphere as romantic as the story itself. Designers can draw inspiration from the film’s bold and emotive use of colour.

Incredible Set Design

“La La Land” takes viewers through iconic Los Angeles locations, rendered even more enchanting through the lens of production designer David Wasco. Each location, from the bustling freeway overpass to the observatory, is meticulously crafted with intricate details. These spaces effectively transport viewers to a world that oscillates between realism and fantasy, showing designers the power of careful and creative spatial design.

Artful Cinematography

The film’s cinematography, helmed by Linus Sandgren, is an art form. From wide sweeping shots to intimate close-ups, the way the film is shot not only advances the narrative but also amplifies the overall aesthetic appeal. The innovative camera techniques and visually stunning compositions can provide valuable insights for designers, particularly those in visual communication or UX/UI fields.

In essence, “La La Land” is a harmonious blend of music, storytelling, and remarkable design elements. It’s a film that highlights the potential of design to generate mood, evoke emotion, and tell stories. As such, it’s a must-watch for designers seeking inspiration and a deeper appreciation for the role of design in cinematic storytelling.

LaLand is a fun, optimistic film and even with a bitter-sweet ending glimpsing the shadows of all dreams, the city always seems happy.
