Alfred Hitchcock Guidelines
Before you get started, please take some time to read through the brand guidelines. There are a few details you’ll need to be aware of to ensure your design has the best chance of being licensed. We’ve highlighted some key points below but make sure you’ve checked all the details before you start creating.
- Alfred Hitchcock trademarks are available to download from the guidelines page
- They can be used in your works, but please don’t use them alone or outside of Redbubble
- Please don’t use screenshots or imagery taken directly from a film in your design
- Do a little research to make sure your ideas are unique and haven’t been done before

How to Submit Your Work
Tagging your work with Alfred Hitchcock and AlfredHitchcock will automatically flag the design for review and you may see a notification that your work is temporarily suspended. We’ll notify you by email as soon as your work has been reviewed.
When you’re uploading your work, make sure you include Hitchcock in the title so people can easily find it. And when you’re tagging your work, don’t forget to add other relevant tags like:
Film titles: Vertigo, Rear Window, Rope, Psycho
Characters: Norman Bates, Marion Crane, Judy Barton, John Ferguson
Objects and symbols: Crows, Birds, Knife, Binoculars, Stairs
Best practice for tagging on Redbubble is to aim for around 15 relevant keywords. Check out our post on The Art of Tagging for more tips.

Characters, iconography, and recurring themes are a great source of ideas. You could create a tribute to your favorite character or your own take on a movie poster. Think about classic scenes, memorable quotes, or even some of the visual techniques he famously used in his films. You’ll also find plenty of inspiration online.
