Can’t Look Away: The Lure of Horror Film
Opening in 2011, EMP Museum’s horror film retrospective exhibit is an in-depth look at horror, and how it’s expressed through cinema, biology, history, and contemporary culture. For this project, I spearheaded the graphic look and feel which included illustration art direction, data visualizations, icon design, interactive graphics, interior design, and a robust typographic system.
