Into The Woods Poster

Into the Woods represented another opportunity to play with the symbolism of forests and the feelings that they evoke.  Our creepy woods backdrop for the poster was actually a combination of two images, one of them a fairly normal redwood stump and the other a shadow of a more skeletal weeping tree. The overall impression was one of something that is both familiar and exotic – a forest that is somehow just wrong.

The title font was a nice find named Caribbean Tool. The font’s pleasant foliage became much more sinister when used in a dark color, giving a feeling of an overgrown forest that has gotten out of control. The mood was finalized with a green glow to give an impression of sinister magic at work.
