Client: Bijou Shakes Theatre Group
Brief: Bijou Shakes is a Colorado Springs theatre group that will perform free Shakespeare plays during summers in the alley behind downtown art galleries. Inspired by New York's Shakespeare in the Park, Bijou Shakes was looking for a logo that would reflect their urban location and incorporate the Bard's likeness.
Solution: My two inspirations for this project were graffiti art and the stenciled typography seen on theatre set doors and scenery. I created a simple stencil portrait of Shakespeare and then added a "sticker" over his eyes to reflect the sold out stickers often seen on Broadway posters.
