Dawn of the Dead poster

Finally! A design for Dawn of the Dead! I started this quite a while back, but wasn't completely happy with it. I like it, sure, but it's a little too similar to the actual poster and I wanted to try and work in the "grabby hands" theme I started with the posters for Night and Day. I may revisit this later, but I couldn't show up at the HorrorFest without a poster for this movie--especially since many of the zombies from the film will be there.

If you're interested in buying this as a print, please go here:…

Oh yesssss. In a dissenting opinion, the font is one of my favorite things about this. It screams horror with that twinge of camp, which is Dawn to the tee.

Yeah--there was a PIE-FIGHT, for crying out loud!

Thanks for the kind words! I wish I could take credit for the film, but I'll settle for just the poster.

I love it! What font is this?
markwelser's avatar
Sorry for the late reply. I couldn't remember the name of the font--it's called FLY.

Great poster for a gret movie, but I must admit I'm the same opinion as Deceptio

Thanks! Playing with fonts is new for me so I'm never positive I've made the right decision with these. It was so much easier when I was just using the original logos. Oh well.

I kinda like it, but the Font doesn´t "feel" quite right.

Hmmm...fonts are always my weakness. I'll get it right someday!
