February 2015 called for some really fun design:
To make a playbill/programme for the old western play, Annie Get Your Gun, about Annie Oakley in the 1890s.
I thought to myself: there is NO better way to go about this than making the playbill look like it was made in the 1890s.
The layout, imagery and typography are all closely based around style from late 1800's programs.
I did quite a bit of research—no fonts in the program were originally created past Annie Oakley's time.
Oh, old font-stacking advertisements. Such a simple, guilty pleasure to recreate one.
