DESIGNING FOR POLTERGEIST
DEC 2018 - PRESENT
My first interaction with Poltergeist was through an R&D for what would become Art Heist, which was then titled Compo. We were still courting each other creatively at that point, having only met with their Artistic Director, Jack Bradfield for a chat. As an offer of goodwill, I offered to take a look at their Touring pack for the show that they would be submitting for funding. That started a journey of design work that lay outside the realms of the production, including logo redesign, graphic and editorial design for future work, rehearsal photography, and recording, some of which I’ve included below.
Following our success with Art Heist, Poltergeist asked me in Summer of 2020 to join them as a permanent addition to their team, as their Associate Designer.
