EDINBURGH FRINGE FESTIVAL POSTER FOR LETTER OF MARQUE'S
DON'T FEED THE CATS
When the Letter of Marque Theater Company was bound for Scotland’s renowned Fringe Festival for their production of Don’t feed the Cats, they needed an image that would hold its own amongst the city’s poster-covered walls and pillars.
To advertise the semi-satirical theatricalized wartime writings from Iraq by Phil Nerges with original music by Vic Ruggiero of The Slackers, I opted for shapes and colors that would feel powerful in their simplicity with a composition easily altered for a variety of formats from large-scale poster to cropped down postcard.
The image juxtaposes a bomb drop reminiscent of Dr Strangelove with the odd quietude of a cat soaring towards its inevitable demise.
