Brief

Concept

This project consisted of a poster design for the Royal Irish Academy of Music's production of the Henry Purcell opera entitled "The Fairy Queen". The RIAM required a design which sold the story of the opera, whilst capturing the attention of a young audience.
I wanted to create a story that would draw the viewer into the story. The poster draws on themes of voyeurism and playfulness, two big themes within the plot. I created an isometric illustration with vibrant colours to convey the surreal feel of the opera.
