Alice in Wonderland is a treasured story for children and adults alike. For this stage production of a story inspired by Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece the goal was to create a visual that would entice university students, faculty and the community at large to attend one of the performances during the limited engagement.
This solution focuses on one of the most popular characters in the story, the Mad Hatter.We wanted this character poster to use key elements of Alice’s first meeting with the hatter. The Mad Hatter is represented through his hat, tea cup and crazed smile. The tea cup’s decor/hatter teeth are created using the heart shape that ties back to another protagonist, theQueen of hearts.
The client was delighted in the clever smile created with the tea cup. The production was considered a success by all parties involved.
