UC Berkeley TDPS 2017–18 Performance Season Posters

by Leila Singleton

The Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, commissioned imagery advertising their 2017–18 performance season.

Though each image adheres to the unique theme of the show it represents, all the artwork is unified by the concept of duality. In terms of execution, the series was unified through type and color palette, and in the way it was rendered: all backgrounds were painted in acrylic, foreground elements were painted in watercolor, and each poster features paint splashes. This handmade approach was paired with vector art and transparency.

The art appeared in print and online — posters, flyers, programs, and social media-ready images were dispersed on the university's campus, the web, and beyond.
