Penny Dreadful is a psychological thriller that takes place in the dark streets of Victorian London. It explores the origins of classic literary characters like Dr. Frankenstein and Dorian Gray and merges them with evil spirits and mythical immortal creatures like vampires, in a suspenseful chase. Penny Dreadful was one of the shows that got me interested in graphic design for film. So when I was assigned to design a DVD packaging for a TV show, it was my first and only choice.
Keeping up with the theme, I chose to incase the CD's in a vampire hunting kit along with garlic, silver bullets and a gun, and a booklet that has character introductions and screenshots.
A new title treatment that showcases the Victorian thriller theme of the show.
Full mock-up showing all aspects of the packaging set. CD's are accessible by turning the cross upside down,
which is an anti-christian symbol that appears frequently in the show.
