The process of creating this poster was a very important lesson in my design career. The objective was to create a campy horror movie poster from the 1950’s. In order to arrive at a result that is similar to posters from that era, an immense amount of research needs to be made. I studied composition, color palettes, typography, even the name structures. The challenge of recreating posters from that era was breaking the rules of composition that I had spent so long practicing. I created a rudimentary random name generator and chose the first few names that inspired me. I have included my process work from the rough stage to the final result. Kiss of the Hidden Lobsters won in the end because of it’s ridiculous and comical nature. 
Above are the Roughs and Value Comp Stages
