I was once again asked to design the imagery and accompanying marketing materials for HeronBridge College’s major production. This year they are producing Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella. Ten minutes before the initial meeting, I sat in the car park with my pencil and sketchbook and produced this idea, and it was accepted immediately. (this is the after-ink view of the sketch). It was scanned in and vectorised and more detail was added. Some bits were changed. This was the final design.
Once the design was approved, it was time to translate it for all kinds of different applications….
Long skinny bus stickers, facebook cover pictures, posters, flyers and tickets.
The tickets are not very exciting colour wise, because they have to be printed out in-house and in one colour. So I added a tiny little message to the bottom of the ticket. There are 18 different messages along the lines of:
Any coaches that turn back into pumpkins before midnight will be eaten.
All female guests, please refrain from drooling on the seats when the Prince arrives.
The Ugly step-family is looking for a new house-keeper. Love of drudgery a must.
Beetroot, turnip and other under-appreciated-vegetable-coaches are also welcome.
In order to avoid confusion, glass slippers are strictly prohibited.
Only one mystery guest allowed at the ball. Please present this ticket on arrival.
