Project description

I require an A3 poster (also delivered as a portrait A5 flyer size) for a theatrical stand-up comedy show to be presented at FRINGE WORLD 2016 in Australia.


One of the two attached images should be the basis for the poster, as I feel this communicates the main themes of the show.

Although this is a comedy show, the themes discussed are Alzheimers, loss, memory and death, so I don't want the poster to be 'silly' or 'funny' - leaning more towards a dark, intriguing presentation

Experimentation with typography would be appreciated, but please keep it flat/bold/calligraphic rather than 3D/cartoony/garish. I have attached in the 'things i like' section, some pictures of classical religious etchings (The Lord will provide; faith hope and charity) that have a lovely style that I find engaging and fitting.

It is important that the show details and press quotes are intelligently laid out and easily readable.

We'd like the poster to be eye catching and idiosyncratic, to entice potential audience members to find out more about the show online.

Our target audience is a 25-50 year old males and female comedy fans.

Please no comedy cliches such as microphones, stage etc.
