Illustration for a Theatre Company: Elastic Band Productions
Updated: Dec 26, 2020
In April 2016, theatre company Elastic Band Productions put on a production of Ella Hickson’s Boys, directed by Hugh Roberts. For the show, I created an original image of the cast from a photograph they sent to me. The play went down really well for their first production, and sold out towards the end of the run. With the image I made, I created the poster (in various colours) and the social media imagery.
In December the same year, they performed Simon Stephens’ Punk Rock, directed by Joshua Elliott. I proceeded to create another original image for this show, and used it on the posters and social media imagery!
Lastly, in September 2017, they performed Breathing Corpses by Laura Wade. For this one, I created an image that represented the story, without the cast in it. The show sold well.
All the shows were performed at the wonderful Hen & Chickens Theatre & Bar, Highbury & Islington. I loved working with these guys, and have done various other designs for them individually and in other performances.
