BYU Graduate's Poster Designs Set the Stage

Cameron King designed a series of posters to promote the 2005-06 theater season at Brigham Young University's Harris Fine Arts Theatre. The 12-foot high, boldly colored posters were a challenge of consistency, King said in a September 19th story by Erin Pierce of the Daily Universe. In order to achieve unity, all posters for the entire season were designed at the same time, with special attention paid to color, image quality and placement of phrases that represent the diverse plots and themes of the plays set in Egypt, Italy, America and Spain.

The tone of the poster must feel the same as the tone of the play, and the colors must reflect that,” Kind said. “Using a variety of colors and other elements from what the production represents, we create something modern while [remaining] true to its historical setting.

King graduated from BYU's graphic design program and is starting his professional career with Martha Stewart Living magazine in New York.
