Letterpress Show Poster

  • For this show poster for a production of A Streetcar Named Desire, I drew inspiration from traditional Americana letterpress design and the New Orleans setting the play takes place in. The process of printing the poster merged the process of letterpress printing with today's technology. The design was first created digitally, but then using a laser cutter, I cut and engraved the design into plates of birch plywood. These pieces were then mounted, inked, and printed on the letterpress.
