Promotional poster for Sarah Ruhl’s adaption of the Greek myth based on Eurydice and Orpheus hosted by Northern Illinois University.
This poster was an assignment under the parameters of “fragmentation” of type & image within a design — specifically poster design.
Much like any project, the process begins in the sketchbook. The final three images on this page showcase early sketches and ideas where the attempt of fragmenting type & image begins. Once there is an inkling of an idea, it is then worked on digitally through the usage of photo and type manipulation. During this process, even in the very early stages, it was important to make sure that type & image disrupted each other in an optically interesting way but also work harmoniously to create a cohesive poster.
The manipulated image was found on Adobe Stock and was purchased for the purpose of this project.
