Two Michaels were involved in the making of this poster - the fantastic photographer Michael Wharley, who photographed the actors, and the also-fantastic Michael Pitt, my very own dad, who photographed the rose.  There are plenty of stock images of roses available of c...

Polka are a children's theatre, who aim to put the child at the heart of their productions. Polka were keen to feature children on the posters, without implying that the actors would be children (the actors are all adults). The idea behind this set of designs was to sh...

SIX is a really fantastic new musical about Henry VIII's six wives. It's a bit like Hamilton, crossed with the Spice Girls - it's very cheeky, very girl-power, and almost more like a pop concert than a musical.  The first idea I had was to tear off the head from an ima...

When someone asks me, 'what's your favourite poster you've done', my mind jumps to the projects which have involved buying, photographing, then having to dispose of large amounts of tasty things.  Up until now, Three Streets Productions' 100,000 Smarties was the winner...

The idea of the egg for Macbeth for this year's Iris Theatre summer season came from the theme of childlessness in the play.  An egg is a universal symbol of fertility, so I went for an empty egg, lit from behind in order to give a reddish womb-like glow.  The crown in...
