For many years, I have been in love with theater and especially musicals. After the popularity of the idea of a musical based on the Pixar movie Ratatouille, many different users started to write their own musicals based on their favorite media. Since I can’t write music, I decided to use my skills to create the concept and designs for some fictional musicals
1. Bridgerton: I wanted the design to be clean and elegant but also represent the 1810's, so I drew a marble bust modeled after the girl who plays Daphne in the show. I added the tangle of flowers and vines to represent the way Daphne is trapped in her ignorance and her marriage. I chose the mix of pinks to represent Daphne's desire to be a woman in a stereotypical way, and the baby blue to add a serine and clean background.
2. Nancy Drew: I chose to make a 21st century college-aged Nancy to fit in with Broadway's current focus on nostoagic characters. I wanted the design to be fun and eye catching. I was inspired by the idea of a billboard in a public area of a college campus. A small space crowded with many flyers trying to grab and hold your attention. The colors are bold but still a nod to a vintage pallet.
3. Punk Rock Princess: I went for a 2000's pop-punk jukebox musical focused on songs with girls' names in them. Jukebox musicals tend to be crowd pleasers so this seemed like a no brainer. I gave each word of the show title, Punk Rock Princess, a font(s) that matched the connotation of the word. I chose a color palette that includes both traditional rock colors, red and black, and mixed it with girly punk colors, yellow and pink.
