REGION  UK

The first thing requested on the Vamp cover was that to incorporate a ‘special’ print colour into the illustration (metallic or neon) So colour became the big theme for this design, it’s also a representation of the films strong use of ‘comic book’ stylistic lighting and neon colours.

The design also really needed it to shout ’80s’ to people so I drew the title in a classic brush script (cornering the V and P into fangs, although this did get lost behind the characters in the end), I then incorporated the subtle neon pyramids in the background as based on the origins for Grace Jones ‘Vamps ‘ character, complete with stars and a full moon to set the 80’s retro mood.

I wanted to represent the more comical side of Vamp as I felt going down a too dark gory horror route wouldn’t be appropriate (its a extremely tame horror film by today’s standards) so I was trying to sell Vamp more on its strength of 80s teen horror nostalgia, appealing to people looking for a good old classic Light hearted comedy horror romp!
