Romeo & Juliet Poster Series Designed for the Marshall Civic Players performance of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet as a freelance project. I hopped to emphasize the dichotomy between the union and the violence of the classic play.
AFTER/LIFE is a project at my Communications Assistant post at the Residential College in the Arts and Humanities (RCAH). Both photos utilized in the double exposure technique of the design are Creative Commons pieces. The photograph of the African American woman is by William Stitt. Learn about AFTER/LIFE.
