True Blood Posters

19/6/12 – True Blood Season Five

I have discovered a series of  Posters, which promote the latest season of True Blood. The blood significantly contrasts with the white backdrop, which initiates an interesting composition between the subjects within the image.

One could argue that the posters appear similar to the Red Cross advertisements, although the large splatters of blood within the image suggests that the recent  season of True Blood is jam packed full of horror, gore and violence.

One could argue that the colour of the blood and the overtones create textural and tactile qualities in order to appropriate real human blood. The visual elements are quite simple, which invites the audience to immediately view the image and the text.
