The work I did on Dracula was at early stages of production when Mark was deciding on the look and feel of the whole piece. It is such a well known story that I think we both felt that we were walking through a minefield of cliches. We talked a lot about possibilities and directions that we could take before honing in on the final look. Here is the selected poster image and logo that we got to. Mark had a very clear idea of the direction the show was going to take and in that sense I feel that this is a very successful image. I wouldn't associate it with the film versions of Dracula yet it touches on one of the key elements of the book.
Apart from the logo I also did a bit of image retouching to make Jonathan Goddard (Dracula) a bit more cadaveric and to enhance the lighting set-up. I was working on another project so I couldn't be involved further in the final graphic design as with the previous piece 'Made In Heaven'.
