Hijack Halloween Art Direction

Hijack Halloween Project Art Direction

Approached by Hijack to create a visual concept; design packaging and printed promotional matter for an Arts Council funded project entitled Hijack Halloween.

The Hijack team in collaboration with artist Davina Drummond created a series of comunnity and family events for an alternative Halloween.

Studio Woody came up with the concept of physically changing the look of Halloween through making, which perfectly fitted in with the programme of creative workshops.

Studio Woody designed: Hijack Halloween Toolkit packaging; all printed posters and leaflets; badges; rubber stamps; and an A6 Handbook that pulls out to a double-sided A2 poster.
