ICPL Author Event: Joe Hill posters

These are two versions of a promotional book reading poster that I did for Joe Hill’s new novel, “Nos4A2”. The book is full of suspense, terror, and intrigue and I wanted the final product to try and convey that to library patrons. The first version (the green one) was my initial draft. I chose to use what I would consider to be “creepy” or “scary” fonts and played around with the placement and size of all of the poster elements. For the final version (the red one), however, I chose a more streamlined font similar to the one used on the book cover itself. I had changed out the author photo but kept the subtle layering of the title in the background and used deep red hues to convey a mysterious, intense mood- and found a different cover to match!
