Masaryk in America Poster

My first poster to be printed large scale, this poster for a Czech/English premier at the Czech National Theater holds a special place in my heart.

Masaryk in America was a performance written for the National Theater of the Czech Republic with a cast of both American and Czech actors. At the time, I was working with the production house that was putting up the performance and providing the actors. The Artistic Director approached me to make this poster as I had made other ones for the season but for this project, I was allowed free creative reign on the concepts that I was to pitch.

I came forward with three concepts, and the chosen poster is by far my favorite. The water color and sketch were both done on paper, scanned and corrected on Photoshop. To me, this gives the poster and organic feel that compliments the main outlined figure well.

Although my design style has developed and matured since this poster, I never can bring myself to take it off my portfolio. This was my first poster design to be printed and poster in a large scale and I will never forget the feeling of seeing it for the first time posted on a wall in Prague. I was over the moon.
