Poster design for Independent Theatre's 2015 premiere of The Great Gatsby.
The production deals more with Fitzgerald's literature and characters than the era's glitz and glamour, so the design was an unembelished juxtaposition of Gatsby's decadence with his nefarious origin.
I conceived the poster at the end of 2014 when I designed the company's playbill for 2015, and created a series of minimalist placeholder images to accompany each production. The full-scale poster image was then realised in 3d.
Scribbles from 2014 (above) and the 2015 season brochure (below) I made at the end of 2014 with the placeholder graphic.
thank you!
