Local Chicago theater, Tympanic Theatre, reached out to me to create a poster for their performance of Blueberry Toast. They sent over the script and some key concepts and images. Marriage, love, sex, disappointment, suburbs, facade/fakery, toast, blueberries, blueberries on toast, knife.
Official Play Blurb
"It’s a Sunday morning in a sunny, suburban kitchen. Barb is making breakfast for her husband, Walt. Their children, Jack and Jill, are busy writing a play. When Barb and Walt disagree over a seemingly innocuous piece of blueberry toast, the veneer of their polished existence begins to crack and what’s underneath might eat them for breakfast."
I wanted the design to be a Pinterest recipe board meets Dexter promo poster. I ran to the grocery store to collect the ingredients for blueberry toast. After making a mess of my kitchen floor and a quick photoshoot I had my shots! I edited the photos and incorporated the type. I like the idea that it looks nice and sweet but the knife is just a bit out of place and a little too large. Also, the cracked egg adds a bit of imperfection and discomfort. I wanted the poster to have a bit of a metaphor without being too obvious.
