Here is my latest poster design for Port Tobacco Players’ production of the Dixie Swim Club.
The Dixie Swim Club is a play about five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team. In the play, they set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships.
Previous poster designs for this play usually show the women from behind, embracing with kooky beach hats and standing in the sand or on the beach. I wanted to do something a little different and focus on what brought them together in the first place: the swimming pool. I instantly thought of a composition that would have the women swimming close together, creating a close bond compositionally with their positioning, curves and bright colors uniting them. It was my first idea and the only one I finalized. I wanted the title treatment, which is hand lettered, to feel as if it were floating or distorted by being in the water.
