The Belgrade Theatre in Coventry were going through a rebrand and were featuring much grittier, stripped down artistic performances as part of a new season.
One of these performances was an adaption of Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. This was a minimal set-piece, with stark and emotional on-stage performances from the cast that could work just as well in a contemporary environment in film.
For the poster I wanted to examine the multiple personalities and the shifting focus of each and naturally came to use a series of straight forward portraits that I reassembled and weathered. Each portrait had very narrow focus, so elements of each face are sometimes out of focus for further ambiguity.
The primary typography of the poster is based around a series of typographic experiments, whereby I looked closely at each character and its identifiable characteristics. Each of these were then skewed so that the lower case had a reduced, constructivist approach and the upper case became overtuned and more deconstructivist.
