Oh, the Horror - Title Design 2

I refined the rough title treatment. I tried my best to keep an eye on spacing and character weights and all that important typographic stuff, but sure enough some issues arose. I decided I'd do the drop shadow for "Oh, the" in photoshop as getting it dead on was a major pain. I liked the treatment for "Horror" but I felt the character weights were too inconsistent.

The end result:


  1. I like the chunkier treatment on "horror" in the penciled version.

  2. I think the pencilled version looks more modern, while the final version stays a little truer to the old EC comics. That being said...I also like the pencilled version.
