I’ve designed a variety of marketing materials for several burlesque shows in Seattle. I try to capture the theme and tone of a particular show through color, typography, and image. I work with the shows’ producers to define requirements and and meet their needs for both print and web.


Live from Studio G-String


This show was a burlesque tribute to Saturday Night Live. The goal of the burlesque show was to recreate an episode of the TV show as closely as possible—this included creating interstitial photos of performers between acts. I worked with photographer Lou Daprile on a photoshoot to capture images, then I manipulated the photographs to best emulate the look of Mary Ellen Matthews’ photos on the show. I also designed the show’s poster, web banner advertisements, and program cover.

Roadside Attractions


This burlesque show was about American tourist attractions and roadside attractions. The producer wanted a vintage, postcard-style map of the United States for the poster. I looked at several vintage maps and drew inspiration from postcards and souvenirs.

Y Can’t Tori Strip


Y Can’t Tori Strip was a burlesque show inspired by the music of Tori Amos. The producer wanted a poster that looked like a zine designed by an angsty 90’s teen girl. I collaged pictures of the cast from 90’s achieve the desired look and feel.

Relentless


Relentless is a show featuring boundry pushing burlesque. The poster for this show, which has been running for several years, had already been created by another designer. I worked with that established visual style to design ads for the Stranger both in print and online.
