• A poster design for the musical Once Upon a Mattress.

PUBLICATION DESIGN

CENTER PLAYERS COMMUNITY THEATRE

PROJECT BRIEF

Every season, The Center Players Community Theatre produces at least one musical production. For the fall of 2017, Center Players' choice was Once Upon a Mattress. The show is a cheeky retelling of the princess and the pea, with a very unexpected kind of princess. With that in mind, the director was very clear about having a poster design that reflected an unconventionally rumpled and patchy princess.

POSTER INSPIRATION

With the appearance of the real actress in mind, I chose to model her likeness on the final artwork. And considering almost everyone knows the fairy tale story, I also decided to use fairly conventional imagery. What would the story be without the princess, a tall stack of mattresses, and a tiny hidden green pea? Given the time period, I also modeled a background pattern after a traditional medieval pattern--the thistle.
