Dark with out using Black

October 17, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

I was watching some of the movies on the Syfy Channel this weekend.  I really like the commercial that they use to promote the 31 days of Halloween.

I really like the light use of black and there is still a sense of darkness but it’s not scary. It’s a little gloomy. The smoke effect that reflects the advancement of the dark and dreary night. The transformation into the animals  does play on how your imagination transforms when you are alone in the dark and scared

I like the type design of the 31 days of Halloween. The stack and off balanced design does play with the eye AND reads  well.  The missing fragments of the letters does give the worn and old look – not the traditional black and orange block Halloween text.
