Claret – Victorian Gothic Character Exploration

This project revolved around the creation of a Gothic themed Vampire world, with characters reflecting and inspired a research document – delving into the lore of vampirism around the world. This tackled how different cultures created lore and fiction to explain science they didn’t quite understand, from the classic European vampire, to the ‘Jiang Shi’ – the hopping vampires of Chinese legend.
