Inspired by classic horror movies, Nightmare Matches feature some of their most iconic characters. I wanted to play with the duality within those characters, so each box has two different illustrations (outside/inside). The characters/movies I chose for this project were:
Count Dracula, from Dracula (1931)
Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde, from Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931)
Wolf Man / Larry Talbot, from The Wolf Man (1941)
Freddy Krueger, from A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
Seth Brundle / Brundlefly, from The Fly (1986)
The artifacts from our projects (in my case, the matchbooks) were sold at a pop-up store we organized, at Mercado Municipal de Matosinhos. Nightmare Matches were available in three different colours: green, yellow and orange.
Inside the boxes you can also find information about the movie, as well as a small trivia.
On the back of every box there is a quote from the movie.
When purchasing a pack of matches, customers also received a bag with 11 stickers.
Thank you!
