Department of Drama Theatre Illustrations
A custom set of illustrations to represent a season of theatre productions.
The University of Alberta Faculty of Arts Department of Drama was in need of a set of custom illustrations to represent all plays and theatre productions in their 2017/2018 Studio Theatre season. The illustrations were required to have an individual look, theme and aesthetic while still maintaining an overall consistent look when viewed as a set. The overall concept used harsh and bold graphics juxtaposed with photographed images to represent the contrasting themes in the plays. The images are split and flipped or mirrored to give viewers a false sense of symmetry to create tension, confusion and discomfort. The distorted, imperfect and offset elements represent the truth and shifting realities of the play themes. The illustrations were then used for the posters, playbills and online promotion.
