You all know us best for our pun-tastic handprinted designs and silly greetings cards, but did you know that we do LOTS of design and branding work through hello DODO also? (we totally forgive you if you didn't realise this, new website coming in the new year!)
Sometimes a project comes a long that is so exciting and inspiring but also pushes us to think differently....and that project for us just recently has been for the wonderful Herringbone Arts and their Theatre Royal Brighton show 'A Winter's Trail'.
A Winter's Trail is a magical enchanting adventure, a promenade experience for young children and adults to share together. As soon as we saw photos of the puppets and sets being lovingly made by hand for the show we were totally spellbound! We knew that this was something incredibly special, tactile and inspirational and that any graphics we designed would need to try to convey this.
A Winter's Trail is about adventure and making small discoveries, hearing stories unfold and collecting treasures along the way.
We drew jagged wintery branches by hand, cut them out with scissors and created a mysterious and magical layered woodland scene to house one of the gorgeous puppet photographs. We also drew the title by hand as this papery, tactile style just seemed to suit the show so perfectly. Herringbone Arts loved this style so much that they asked us to create them a new logo too!
A Winter's Trail runs at Theatre Royal Brighton from 4th - 24th December - check out the Herringbone Arts website for more details and tickets!
