Texas Frightmare Weekend is a huge horror convention held annually in Dallas since 2006, featuring some of the biggest names in horror film and television. I had the opportunity to design a new incarnation of the Frightmare website as part of a freelance collaboration with Rough Ride Creations.
I set out to create something iconic of the horror genre, something worthy of the behemoth that is Texas Frightmare Weekend. The final design includes twisted branches, an eyeball, a tentacle, and plenty of worn grindhouse-style poster wear to capture a feeling of modern horror, as well as the nostalgia of the splatter great from the 70s and 80s.
