Poster Narrative.

  • Neither of us was familiar with William Shakespeare’s play The Merchant of Venice when we started this project. We both had to do some of our own research in order to get more comfortable with the material. We utilized what our collaborators had said about the play and took their advice on what direction we should go in. They listed a few symbolic items and recommended we utilize in the poster. We tried to illustrate the feel of how they adapted the play into an episode of “Law & Order” to the best of our ability.
  • Originally, we wanted to work with the symbols that had the strongest meaning. We all thought represented the ring, the balance scale and a knife or dagger interacting together would hold the most symbolic meaning. We wanted to make the title a focal point in order to draw in potential viewers, but mostly wanted to illustrate the original concept in more than just four words. We initially struggled when it came to our illustrations. This was simply because the symbols we chose to use weren’t the easiest to represent through simple vector illustrations. It was a challenge for us to come up with a concept that looked professional yet held a sense of originality and creativity to it.
  • Overall we found this to be quite the challenge artistically. We were weary on what colors would work best with the gold of the ring and had to make some sacrifices. Eventually we got rid of the balance scale as working with it proved to be too awkward. We chose the background color because it represents the turquoise ring which a big part of the play. The rest was kept simple with the bold black of the title and the gold of the ring. We had to play with the positioning of the hand, ring and dagger quite a bit until we found we found it to meet to our creative standards. We played with the layout until we came to a design we liked and thought our collaborators would find to be a visually appealing representation of their adaptation of the play. We think that it reflects their concepts and ideas well and both our creative voice show through.
