MEASURE FOR MEASURE / poster - 2012

Measure for Measure theater performance promotional postcard design

Having designed the artwork for the Bedlam Ensemble's production of The Delirium of Edgar Allan Poe in 2011, I returned to create the promotional material for the company's performance of Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure the next year. The play was set in New York in the 1970s, so many of the characters were reinterpreted to fit the setting, drawing inspiration from black metal, fetishwear, sharp suits, and other subcultural motifs. The poster features a carefully rendered architectural study, complete with graffiti, while the postcard presents the play’s promotional information as a collage of wheatpasted flyers and playbills.
