Theatre Poster Design
The objective was to make a poster for a theatre act based on a poem by Pierre de Ronsard. My take on the poem was to twist it a little bit and look at the negative side of "love".
"Ode à Cassandre" de Pierre de Ronsard
 
Sweetheart, let’s see if the rose
That this morning had open
Her crimson dress to the Sun,
This evening hasn’t lost
The folds of her crimson dress,
And her complexion similar to yours.
Ah! See how in such short space
My sweetheart, she has on this very spot
All her beauties lost!
O, so un-motherly Nature,
Since such a beautiful flower
Only last from dawn to dusk!
So if you believe me, my sweetheart,
While time still flowers for you,
In its freshest novelty,
Do take advantage of your youthful bloom:
As it did to this flower, the doom
Of age will blight your beauty.
Process: Since I have developed an interest for photography over the last couple of years I decided to add that interest to the poster design. I had a rough idea to start out with and the feeling I wanted to express through the poster.
