Bad Reception (cover art)

Created For: Mark Todd/ Guvnor Films

Summary: This is a DVD cover piece that demonstrates my digital, print and typography ability. For this project, the goal was to create a DVD cover for a real horror movie called “Bad Reception. I met my goal with this solution by using a very dark color scheme to be alignment with the dark horror theme. In my process, I first created the overall layout for all of the cover elements by sketching out different ideas. Next, I went through and selected images that, again, were in alignment with the dark horror theme. Finally, I laid out the final rendering in Photoshop and added all of the needed effects, until everything was complete and ready for print. All of which support my digital, print and typography ability, proving that I have what it takes to produce an effective DVD cover design. The strength in this piece is the powerful imagery and dark color scheme. If, I were to consider improving upon this design, I would probably not change anything, because the piece effectively hits its intended goal and is very powerful in its communication.
