• Final poster design for The Nutcracker play production.

PUBLICATION DESIGN

CENTER PLAYERS COMMUNITY THEATRE

PROJECT BRIEF

Center Players Community Theatre has been producing plays locally in Madison, Mississippi for more than fifteen years. One of their best selling productions has always been The Nutcracker, a Christmas Play. The director of the latest production of this show approached me to make a bright and colorful poster design. However, he had a specific request:no traditional Christmas color palette.

POSTER INSPIRATION

While reading the script for this show, I made note of how many key characters were in the the cast. But, drawing them all as complete illustrations would have been too cluttered. I opted instead to hand draw their presence literally or symbolically. The illustrations turned into small cameos to be put on Christmas ornaments. I was inspired by the rich scenery described in the show and by the director. With that in mind, I chose to use jewel tones set on a dark background to elevate the more important elements.

I wanted to send you a brief note to say thank you for the beautiful poster design you created for me. The colors and design are truly eye catching. The overall design of the poster is truly fantastic and depicts what I was envisioning for this project. Thank you for your professionalism and willingness to make changes as needed in a timely manner as well as putting the design on paper.
