To coincide with Halloween, Manchester branding agency Creative Spark has created a series of classic horror film-themed posters which are being exhibited and sold to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care

The posters have all been created by members of the agency from designers to the creative director and films referenced include American Werewolf in London, Nightmare on Elm Street, Childs Play, IT (shown above), and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Rear Window (both shown below).

The posters are currently exhibited in both the North Tea Power café on Tibb Street and the Richard Goodall Gallery on Thomas Street Gallery until October 31. They can also be viewed online at creativespark.co.uk/halloween2012 where 420 x 297mm Risograph prints (each in an edition of 50) can be bought (by UK residents only), priced at £15 each.

Rebecca Lynch reviews the Book of Books, a survey of 500 years of book design, Jeremy Leslie explains how the daily London 2012 magazine delivered all the news and stories of the Games and Michael Evamy explores website emblemetric.com, offering “data-driven insights into logo design”. In addition to the issue this month, subscribers will receive a special 36-page supplement sponsored by Tag celebrating D&AD’s 50th with details of all those honoured with Lifetime Achievement awards plus pieces on this year’s Black Pencil and President’s Award-winners Derek Birdsall and Dan Wieden. And subscribers also receive Monograph which this month features Rian Hughes’ photographs of the unique lettering and illustration styles of British fairgrounds
