This client is a music teacher with over 80 students. Her recitals are elaborately themed musical productions with posters to advertise the event, recital programs at the event, and t-shirts for the children. Every year a new theme is selected and the artwork produced must be applicable to the various print materials to be produced.
All artwork is designed in Illustrator. T-shirts are created as colour separated files for screen printing. The 2013 theme was the Wizard of Oz. The main poster and recital program was based on bridging the gap between the old Wizard of Oz film (the Emerald City) and the new Oz film (the balloon that brought the wizard to Oz). The design had to keep in mind cost of colours with t-shirt printing, so the main design was flattened to use only 4 colours, and set against purple to make the design pop. The t-shirt was printed using discharge inks to create a worn distressed look with a soft hand feel.
