Poster Design

The poster designer has a much smaller job during a production, as they usually work on their own and get their poster done way in advance of opening night, usually 3 weeks or so before load-in. He/she is responsible for designing and making a poster advertising the show. This involves meeting with the producers and the director and discussing the information they need to be included on the poster, and the type of message or feeling they want conveyed by the poster. You are the ultimate artistic authority on this project, but bear in mind you are conveying the director’s wishes and you need to have your final product approved.
