Le Barbier de Séville

“Since 1995, we have been collaborating with a theater based in Lorient, Brittany, which is located on the French Atlantic coast. This is one of the posters we have been producing on a regular basis since we started working together. We have created more than 60 of them over a period of 17 years. Since we started, we always kept the same compositional rules; a bold color image which holds a bold black and white typographic composition spelling the title of the play and the spirit of the posters have also stayed consistent over the years. They are not a literal illustration of the play but rather an interpretation of the play itself.”
