Between me and tomorrow（Poster）
The Youth Theatre Sempach was founded in 1999. I was one of the co-founders. Since then every year I design the poster for the annual production. For me it’s always a challenge to find the essence of the play to create an eye-catching poster.
The 2012 production is called „Between me and tomorrow“. It’s a coming-of-age story located at a public swimming pool. Several young adults are talking about the problems at their age.
For the poster I decided to use an image of a single water wing losing air, showing in a simple way the transition from childhood to adulthood. Because a photograph was not very catchy, I illustrated it using the gradient mesh on Adobe Illustrator in a hyperrealistic manner. Because of that it was possible to use a luminous orange instead of dull CMYK colours. Placing the illustration as big as possible in the poster format, I made shure that the poster looks bigger than other posters hanging in the neighbourhood.
