Design a poster for Neil Simon's Barefoot in the Park.
Marketing Neil Simon’s Barefoot in the Park, this poster design highlights the literal and metaphorical challenges of the featured newlywed couple. Their marriage itself is an obstacle, and the steep staircase is symbolic of the exhaustion and frustration that the newlyweds endure. I created the poster’s scene of the heavenly sky and staircase in Illustrator and chose the headline, a quote from the play that describes the overarching theme of the play. The choice of the typeface and bright colors were inspired by whimsical style that often appears in headlines and posters from the 1960’s, around the same time the play made its debut.
