My design for Shivers (1975) for Mrakfest 1.666.
Мракфест or Darkfest (‘dark’ = ‘mrak’ in Macedonian)
Six months after the initial Halloween edition, Mrakfest strikes again, as the organizers say “like a stalking creature from the tales, periodically coming out to the surface to feed with human flesh”. Another film festival for the horror lovers from Skopje, Macedonia. What makes this second or actually, edition No 1.666 different is the huge visual improvement, having a custom festival poster for every film. Cobe, Ivan, Jovan, Kiril and me, worked on ten posters for the festival, two for each artist. We are bunch of guys with a history of collaborations, back from the days when we worked as an art collective called NMP (founded by Ivica, one of the Mrakfest organizers and probably the biggest horror maniac I know).
I had the pleasure to work on Andrzej Zulawski’s Possession (1981) and David Cronenberg’s Shivers (1975). Check the other festival posters on the Mrakfest official blog (Macedonian only).
