I need a poster made up of an image that simply and clearly identifies the show (and can be used either in or outside of the poster format). The poster will include the show's title (Pure Piaf: The Life and Music of Edith Piaf)...with the Pure Piaf portion being more important than the rest, and have a clear area that any booking venue/organization can use to add the specific event details. I would also like to include 'starring Britta Laree' in the design, but want it to be something that could easily be removed if need be. Same with the web site for the show: www.purepiaf.com
I want this image/poster to capture the essence of Piaf and WWII era France in a simple, striking, non-obvious way. I'd like to use photos of myself AS Piaf as the basis for artwork, but don't necessarily want the finished product to look like a photograph.
A theatrical producer who has been known for having striking, simple yet unmistakably memorable show images is Cameron Mackintosh, and you'll see this by looking for main images for shows such as Oliver, Miss Saigon, Les Miserable, The Phantom of the Opera, Cats, etc.
