this is my research of existing horror posters to research layout and some festival posters to research fonts
this is a mood-board of horror
I have looked at a range of horror posters to help give me a understanding on how horror are layed out. They tend to be dark and have have a visual focus point. I’ve also looked at a little font and images to help give me a wider understanding.
this is posible fonts i can use for my poste
i chose blocky and skrachy fonts as it suits I Am Legend as its more zombies like but my favourite is the fourth down on the right as it makes me think of the zombie dog as I imagine its what they’d look like after a fight.
this is my skeches of possible posters
I wanted a simple but clear poster but I wanted to do something different so that’s why, even tho the zombie one is my favourite on, I chose the dogs side face as it’s simple clear but different.
this is my poster
I decide to make changes to the skech after I started making it, i changed the font positioning as it didn’t look right where it was. I also put skraches on the face to match the font and I the it works well. I have now relized that I could have improved it more by adding names to the top but I have ran out of time.
