The Night of the Hunter

I designed this poster for the menacingly awesome classic, The Night of the Hunter, for a rare screening in Los Angeles on its original 35 mm film stock. I wanted to honor its dark, theatrical tone by weaving the narrative into moody, textured illustrations.

Classic films provide me with a constant source of inspiration.

 Water is a big element that appears throughout the film. It was very clear early on to me that I wanted this in my title designs.

I started with the most iconic visual element from the film, Robert Mitchum’s tattooed knuckles. I gave it my own illustrative touch.
