Theatre Poster Development



A5 Sketchbook Pages

I worked with the design agency Feast Creative on a mock brief, creating a poster for the play Pygmalion.

These are some of my initial sketches (pencil and ink) and research into early 20th century London. The typography choice and colour schemes were influenced by the Art Nouveau movement and Alphonse Mucha’s work.


This is is the digital development of my final image. I used Edwardian photographs found online, as well as imagery from the film My Fair Lady (1964), to make my own profile. The straw hat merging into the extravagant duchess hat is a symbol of the character’s transition from peasant girl to respectable lady, and the watercolour flowers reference the setting of the flower stall in Covent Garden market.
