Series of Zombie movie-like posters

Chris Lane / Design, photography / / 3 Comments / Like this

Each year I put together a gathering of guy friends and dub them Zombie night. We do a Mystery Science Theatre 3000 style trashing of bad movies and play some kind of zombie themed board game. Along with that some great food, it ends up being a lot of fun.

I have been doing this for a few years now. For each party I create a poster design and follow a theme through the year. The first year I did illustrations, the second year I did typographic designs, and for 2013, the third year I wanted to make something like movie posters for zombie movies. Then when they are printed out at 12×18 they really will look like movie posters.

This series kind of runs in an ongoing story of a father and his son. You might see it as a cycle, the first being the actual ending, or maybe the first is just the beginning of the outbreak. Then each poster is relevant to the season that the part was in. So the first is of course Winter, then spring, summer, fall. They also transition in time. The first is at night, the next is just before sunrise, then day, then sunset. You can relate your own interpretation in the comments below.

I’d love to hear what you thought of these posters. Which was your favorite? Personally I like the spring one, but they all have their good and bad points.
