Silhouettes are classy illustrations, but these highly morbid Killhouettes bring a new perspective to this type of artwork.

A Killhouette is essentially a silhouette of a person dying from various causes. Since blood and other grotesque things are usually involved in deaths, you can imagine how difficult it would be to craft blood splatters and gore flying out in different directions using only a pair of scissors and some darkly colored paper. To top it off, each victim and murderer is dressed in Victorian clothing, making these Killhouettes super ornate.

Killhouettes are done by John Fair, and if anyone attempts to steal his idea, they may be in for a deadly surprise.

Implications - Consumers are intrigued by Victorian motifs because of its extreme ornateness -- something not commonly seen in modern product designs. To contrast the proliferation of simplified product designs, which consumers have now become apathetic towards, corporations may consider producing goods with intricate patterns and complex design elements.
