godspell

my poster for the theatre department was for the play godspell. i wanted to keep it very simple and bold. therefore i chose to use the imagery of the outline of the hand with a red dot in it because the play is about the life of jesus. however, the play is a musical and is a bit more fun than it is serious. the original play and movie came out in the 60's so that's why i used the psychadelic background to make it more fun. i chose to avoid using a hand lettered font because in all the posters i've seen for this play have used very 60's typography.
