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.
