We were asked by Berkhamstead School to produce a programme and posters for their production of The Miser. The play would also go on tour to the Edinburgh fringe and would need to have stand out amoungst the many other plays at the festival.
After researching the narrative of the play we decided on a photographic route. We staged and shot images that conjure feelings of the tensions that run through the narrative of the play. Though essentially a comedy, the story has does have a slightly sinister plot and we wanted to get this across in the programme and promotional materials. We mixed modern typography as well as duotone imagery to give this project real impact. We were asked to create clothing for the cast at the Fringe as well as outdoor advertising.
