I was asked to develop a poster and accompanying brochure to help advertise "Shakespeare's Garden: an immersive stroll through his sonnets, soliloquies, and scenes," which is an immersive theatrical installation at the Cube (a black box theatre) at Virginia Tech. In the theatre, audience members will hear ambient sound recordings as well as sound stations of actors performing Shakespeare. Additionally, three projections will play motion graphics pieces relating to the selected works.
I captured stills from the three motion graphic pieces (that are a part of the installation), and created an abstract meandering path, reminiscent of a garden stroll. The typeface used is Garamond, which was invented in 1540 and would have been in widespread use during Shakespeare's lifetime.
This resulted in a poster that both reflects the ambiance of the installation and approaches designing for Shakespearean performances in a new way.
