Characterdesign for a campaign to promote the open day for the Dutch Youth theatre schools.

Dag van de Nederlandse Jeugdtheater scholen
Dutch youth theatre schools open day
Mathijs from Things We Love asked me to do the illustrations for the Nederlandse jeugdtheaterscholen open dag (open day of the Dutch Youth Theatre schools). He wanted a little character that would be recognisable and fun. I came up with a little ghost, which would live backstage at theatres. You could see it as a wink to The Phantom, but I just think ghosts and theatres go well together in general. I gave them black masks so they could play different roles.
Additionally I brainstormed on type and design: a tall gothic typeface that’s reminiscent of old theatresigns would suit.
