Project: Design a poster for an upcoming musical at NCRT
Things that were noteworthy about this project:
Putnam is a unique show – a play about childhood where all the children are played by adults. It’s fun, quirky, colorful, and definitely not aimed toward kids. Luckily on this project we got another chance to work with one of our favorite photographers, Evan Wisheropp of Evan Wish Photography.
This show is a definite ensemble piece, so we decided to break away from NCRT’s normal poster branding by featuring all of the “children” on the poster. Each of these headshots was individually taken by Evan Wisheropp, then cut out from their backdrop and combined with layers of shadow and lighting added to create an effect of one combined shot. The background is a blackboard with a color dust effect layered over it. A second layer of the color effect is overlaid over the entire poster and used as a soft light effect to help tie together the poster colors.
