The graphic artist is responsible for the most sensational posters of ABS-CBN’s recent shows and movies.
Kapamilya fans and netizens expressed extra appreciation to Justin Besana, a graphic artist who designed the posters of some of ABS-CBN’s recent TV shows.
Besana worked for various Kapamilya units, including Dreamscape Entertainment and ABS-CBN Film Restoration. He is with Cornerstone Artists management.
On Twitter, netizens paid tribute to Besana’s brilliance, with most mentioning the caliber of his work and the creative mind he employed to design them. The streak of commendations sprung online when ABS-CBN’s drama unit JRB Creative Production released a teaser poster for the highly-anticipated TV adaptation of Darna, starring Jane de Leon.
The said poster contains several Easter eggs that stirred excitement among viewers. A silhouette of Darna flying to the sky, behind ruins resembling the red-costumed superhero’s headdress, and a serpent creeping forward–are some Easter eggs the fans and netizens happily pointed out.
“The DARNA Series teaser poster by THE JUSTIN BESANA huhuhu” tweeted Star Cinema’s Hyro Aguinaldo.
