Arthur Miller’s parable draws a chilling parallel between the Salem witch trials of 1692 and subsequent generations of American mass hysteria – up to the present. Through this savage tale of one small community’s too effortless descent into superstition and paranoia, Miller explores in frightening detail what can happen when fear clouds fact and blame replaces reason.

With this poster design, my goal was to capture the essence of what I felt while watching The Crucible. The overwhelming feeling of heartless finger-pointing judgement driven by manipulation is what stood out the most, so I allowed that emotional experience to direct the design process. If possible, I would’ve loved to place a mirror at the center of the poster to further push the interactive experience that anyone viewing the poster would have.
