to launch the 17th theater season at the amphibian stage in fort worth, texas – alfalfa studio designed a series of posters to help kickstart the bold campaign. the graphic advertisements each interpret eight different plays which are included in the program. to begin the project the design company started by reading all of scripts, then loosely sketched a few ideas before deciding on the final concept.

the idea was to create a visual language that would appeal to long term supporters of the company and to a new generation of theatre-lovers. saturated colors, kitschy patterns and playful illustrations were combined to form one simple image that reflected the chosen play. the ‘isaac’s eye’ poster uses a portrait of newton with a giant eye placed at the center of his head. this tounge-in-cheek graphic was used to metaphorically symbolize the blurred line between fact and hypothesis that was expressed by the author lucas hnath. all of the designs follow a similar process, translating drama, conflict and tension in a witty ‘pop art’ style.
