Guys and Dolls poster design

Guys and Dolls poster design

A poster and playbill design for the Mt. Hood Community College’s Winter 2009 production of Guys and Dolls.

As winnter of a poster design contest, I got the opportunity to design the official poster and program for the play Guys and Dolls. Through use of typography, color, and image I designed a poster that has an old-fashioned Broadway look and feel. I continued this idea on the inside of the playbill by using  bold, condensed headlines and a traditional type layout.

A great resource for all kinds of creative design work is Flickr, believe it or not. They have a special section you can subscribe to called flickrdesign where designers post all kinds of posters, prints, publications, and other Graphic Design projects.

I was especially impressed by these colorful splash (I’m not sure of another word to call this type of design) posters by Nico/DG as he is known. If you look at his work you can see faces inside all of the colorful splatters. If this is not your cup of tea, don’t worry – there’s plenty more design to look at.
