One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
A new design for an old classic


Creating tension through colors and graphics.

This alternate film poster showcases the perceived mental instability of Mac Murphy through the use of a halftone graphic of a cuckoo bird undergoing different treatments, a jarring saturated color scheme, and a skewed, rough, yellow frame. The bold typeface Poplar Std. Black's narrow counters also portray a sense of uneasiness.
