This project explores the history of vampires before their immersion into pop culture, and from this, creating a final outcome that is combined textbook and story book design balancing traditional, modern, and gothic design influences. There is very little information available about the origins of vampires in general — where they came from before they were absorbed into pop culture, so the aim for this project was to bring some light back to these tales from the past, and use them to inform and broadcast a fresh, more interesting and diverse take on vampiric creatures by exploring their origins and cultures. The use of iconography and visual language plays a part in the creation of experimental graphic collages that accompany each story illustrating an aspect or the story line.
