Dial M For Murder

Another chance to work in miniature! Aya got out her tools and built the fireplace, hearth, armchair and table from scratch. We ordered the carpet and a tiny telephone from a doll-house supplies website. The carpet turned out just fine, but the telephone was far too small to be of use so Keith carved one […]

A Murder Is Announced: Program Cover

We have to adapt each Metro poster to the limits of their program cover as part of the job. This has its own set of demands since the program cover is done with off-set printing, using only black plus one colour. This involves a real re-think of the graphic, not least because the dimensions are […]

A Murder Is Announced

This one was a lot of fun to make. The key image in the plot is when the front door of a house opens to reveal a figure silhouetted against the setting sun. This person is shot dead, setting the rest of the play in motion. Aya cut the figure, the floor, the posts and […]

Oscar And Felix

A modern re-working of Simon’s The Odd Couple. Vectors and textures again, using colour, shape, font and silhouette to suggest the two main personalities in the play.

Plaza Suite (2)

Keith’s alternate version of the Plaza Suite illustration with simplified colours and some gentle texture. The edges have been roughed up to suggest a hand-made look. Prints are available in a number of sizes.

Plaza Suite

Plaza Suite is three couples and their relationship conflicts over a week-end at the Park Plaza hotel overlooking New York’s Central Park. The three stories are told over three acts with two actors playing all the roles. We tried to suggest as much of this as we could and, clearly, took influence from The New […]

The Melville Boys (Alt 2)

Another alternate for The Melville Boys. Typographic posters are a very different way of looking at illustration and can be great fun.

The Melville Boys (Alt 1)

The theme of The Melville Boys (dueling brothers) lead to this alternate illustration, inspired by Mexican wrestling posters. Even though it was rejected, we had great fun with the source image. Prints are available.

The Melville Boys

This design was inspired by Polish matchbox illustrations from the 50s. No, really! Textures created with ink and Photoshop. Shapes imported as vectors.

Anything Goes

This classic play deserved classic treatment. Influenced by travel posters of the early twentieth century, we let the iconic imagery speak for itself, backed by a subtle silk-screen texture.
