Cleveland Play House: Show Art
Cleveland Play House needed to stand out from its competitors as they are often confused with other theatres in the area. During my first season creating show art at Cleveland Play House, we decided to move from stock and custom photography to illustration. Inspired by Saul Bass and minimalist design, we chose black and white images with bright accent colors to represent each show. We also challenged ourselves to represent multiple ideas from each play in one, simple, bold image. The new branding has helped to distinguish CPH as a theatre that makes smart, contemporary, and relevant work.
Key ideas conveyed in each image can be found underneath each show image below.
