In 2021, I went to my first ARTI production, "The Cake," and was blown away at the talent and entertainment right under my nose in my hometown. Knowing some of their board members, I shared my review of the show I had seen and was flattered by the offer to design their posters for upcoming productions. I took them up on that without hesitation.
I'm grateful to have the opportunity to help this local, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization promote their hard work, all while conceptualizing a storyline into a two-dimensional composition for each production.
One of the ARTI team members provides isolated photos of cast members portraying their characters, and another team member provides the text that is required for the production.
Along with a summary of the performance, I create a composition that encapsulates the plot of the show, and the emotions the audience might feel.
Deadline / Output
The design is due one month before the opening of each production. Upon completion, I provide a 12x18 digital and print-ready version of the poster, a 24x36 print-ready version to be displayed on the windows of the venue, and a two-sided 4x6 postcard for direct mailing purposes.
