A poster design needs to serve two purposes.

  1. Convey a message.
  2. Appeal to the aesthetic tastes.

Event Poster Design

Working on the design for a poster for a well-known production is difficult.
As a graphic designer, you want to create a new visual that is different.
While remaining true to the production.

Create a Focus

  1. What is the message that my client wants to express?
  2. How would my client like to express their message? 

For the Cookie La Rue poster, I was inspired by the Joni Mitchell Blue LP.
The client Cookie was thrilled to recreate the cover art from Blue.
The poster was sold at the event and was printed in the Mountain Xpress paper.
I was super pleased to have my design work included in the Asheville Mountain Xpress article.

Poster Design Needs to Make an Impact

The Alice – Ballet Poster was reported stolen from storefronts and venues. The poster was the first piece of merchandise to sell at.

The Alice – Ballet Poster began as a strong concept. Working with designer Brian Jones, we created a strong visual concept that had strong aesthetics and focus on the message. The image from the poster design became the visual branding for the event.
