EQUUS — Although I number it among favorite plays, my first opportunity to design posters for this Peter Shaffer drama came fairly recently when asked to create artwork concepts as part of Palm Beach Dramaworks’ 2017 season. Another of my poster designs presented for PDB’s production of Equus was selected over this stark graphic treatment.
Employing black, white, and red inks or dyes has a substantial history in theatre poster advertising. When I first began designing in 1976, using this color palette was encouraged since, due to limited technology at the time, printing companies could keep costs at a minimum using just two color plates—black and red—since the white was always supplied by the paper stock. However, I grew fond of its proven effectiveness and chose it quite often for my Broadway, Off-Broadway, and regional theatre poster designs.
