Hairspray screening poster

We’re proud to have been a presenting sponsor of FilmOutSD’s screening of HAIRSPRAY (1988)! In addition to sponsoring the screening, we also had the privilege of designing the original poster for the event, marrying the 1988 poster artwork with FilmOut SD’s signature branding. An event poster requires a design that communicates a lot of important information as quickly as possible, so we used proper contrast, dynamic angles, and appropriate hierarchy to get the job done right.

When working with CMR Risk & Insurance Services, Inc., we made sure their logo would look amazing at any size by making various mock-ups like the one seen here.

Dance Is In The Air

Dance is all about movement and creativity so this design we created for Malashock Dance for their spring event alludes movement through photos, text treatment and an energetic color palette. Why brand this at all? We wanted to give them a solid foundation for their first event and future events by giving them a strong visual look from the start.
