Opera Poster

10/2021 Solo Project Branding 4 weeks

This brief was to design a poster, catalogue and branding for the Royal Irish Academy of Music's production of the opera Kind Arthur by Henry Purcell and John Dryden. The opera is about two warring factions and the love between King Arthur and the blind maiden Emmeline. There are many themes in this opera but I found the character of Emmeline, the pain she endures and her symbolism as a beacon of hope to be the most interesting. I focused on these themes for my poster.

I began this project by fully breaking down the script and distilling it in to key themes. From there I took motifs I liked and explored different visual languages.
