How to design a Broadway poster.
What a great blog topic, right?
Well, it’s not mine.
I gotta give the credit for this one to my friends over at TDF (including fellow blogger, Mark Blankenship), who came up with the idea and shot an instructional video featuring none other than the man, the legend . . . “Fraver.” If you don’t know Fraver, you should watch the video. Fraver has had his fingerprints all over such posters as The Lion King, Sweeney Todd and Sunday in the Park with George. If you do know Fraver, watch it anyway.
After you do, take a trip over to Fraver’s website, which is a bit of a poster museum itself (see original concepts for Sunday in the Park . . . and more).
And after that, stop by TDF’s website. They’ve been doing some great stuff over there. Stuff you wouldn’t expect them to do. It seems like the TKTS booth isn’t the only thing under TDF’s umbrella that has undergone a renovation.
In both cases, their work is paying off . . . and helping develop audiences for our future.
