The brief was very open; to be as close to the tone of the play as possible and to avoid being gimmicky or comical. A little research on the play drew out a couple of main themes - the rain (obviously), the idea of the past reverberating through the present and a hint of the macabre, drawn out through the textured red background. The poster combines vintage layering with clean modern silhouettes, and the areas of blank space play just as big a part as the graphics in the overall composition, creating a place where the rain has stopped falling.
In other news, the pipeline is stuffed with two more posters, another piece for Marketing Chap and the book cover for Richard Walmsley's Dancing to the Pizzica, all of which will be featured here in the next few weeks.
For anyone wanting to commission a piece, I'm afraid I'm booked up until May, after which I'll be taking a break to focus on finishing my dissertation and passing my last year of exams. I'll be firing up again at the end of June, so do get in touch to be added to the list for then.
