I was tasked to create a poster for the play Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare. I was told to use typography as the main focus and a header that conveys the feel of the play.
Through this poster, the main idea was to depict how manipulation and rumors spread around and create chaos. In summary, the play is about misunderstandings, love, and deception all intertwined. The headline and type treatment in smoke show how the whispers and deception set in the shadows sets off drama. The tone, look, and feel give off the sense of a Shakespearean play and the tone of the play.
The result is a unique poster that focuses on the type manipulation that communicates the chaos of the play.
