For this poster design for the musical Top Hat I wanted to include elements of dancing, spotlights, a stage – and to include feelings of motion and glamour.
This poster went through quite a few iterations before we got to the final version.
On the version far right, below, you can see where I was trying out different ways of making the light shine out through the holes on the title.
The dancer silhouette was created from an actual photograph of Fred Astaire dancing.
Elements from all of these were used in the final version (above)
Venue: Upstairs at the Gatehouse
Client: Something Sacred Productions
Other designs were also presented to the client
The brief: To design a poster for the Lady Taverners 30th Anniversary Concert incorporating an image of Lesley Garrett, pearls and a lot of information.
Kings Langley Players
A poster for a production of Tenessee William’s play “A Streetcar Named Desire”. Looking for a 1950s vibe.
