David Mamet’s Oleanna Poster for Black Bird Theater

Blackbird commissioned me to produce the marquee poster for their upcoming show of David Mamet’s Oleanna. Inspired by poster designs of the 1960s, specifically Saul Bass, the central theme of the show is the power struggle and miscommunication between men and women. The apple core speaks to the educational setting that the play takes place within, the yelling male and female faces show the power struggle, and the caption spells it out -The Original Power Play.

Read an an article on the upcoming show.

Simultaneous Chess Exhibition

There has been a lot of charity activity going on at work, which of course is a good thing. The next one up is a simultaneous chess match. A renowned chess champion, CHALLENGES all HCA Nashville-based employees in a SIMULTANEOUS chess exhibition versus 100 people. Pretty cool concept, and so the poster was born. I designed it as a companion piece to the golf poster collateral I did recently.

Oleanna by David Mamet Teaser Poster

I was contacted by Wes and Greg at the BlackBird Theater company to do a teaser illustration for a 2 person show they will be adding to their 2013 season. It will be Oleanna by David Mamet – whuch opens Jun 6 at Lipscomb University here in Nashville.

The idea was to portray the complex themes in Oleanna written lightly on a blackboard. The title is scratched across after the middle area was suddenly wiped away, to show the intensity of the writing of Mamet. It promises to be a very interesting show.

Golf Outing Poster

This is a teaser poster and other collateral I did for our company’s golf outing. The idea is to maximize the impact the imagery can have on an already busy and crowded cork board. Hopefully the simplicity and clear imagery will be more readable. The idea is to use typography and simple imagery. I had fun experimenting with the font typefaces and mezzotint coloring solution.
