The assignment was to create a poster for a specific play using typography as the main focus and a header that conveys the feel of the play.
I wanted to express the secrecy and betrayal themes within the play and create a sense of suspense. I decided to look into the plays events to see prime moments that convey these themes and chose to use the header "Eye for an eye, head for a..." to create an intriguing feel.
I used an ending scene of a decapitation from the play to convey an eerie, yet intriguing look. I then manipulated the type to form the decapitated head using color to bring the eye to the type so the profile of the face is secondary.
