Midsummer

Study

I designed a poster and script for A Midsummer Night's Dream. My goal was to get them to work together nicely and they are inspired by Midsummer's whimsical, romantic themes.

SCRIPT

For the script, I wanted to stick with trying to capture the play's whimsical, lighthearted nature. I played with dotted lines, fonts with personality and a bit of color to achieve this. Like characters in the play, I wanted the script to become subtly more unruly as you read through it, so deviations from established design norms increase as you go.

POSTER

For the poster, I brought in imagery of the stars, flowers, and faces. This imagery relates to themes in the play. I tried to pick a font that worked looked a little older to reflect that this is a Shakespeare play
