The Crystal Egg
directed by Elif Knight and designed by Jason Kelvin, at The Vaults, 7 - 13 January 2018
For this production, I was asked to create signs for the shops and pubs in the show's setting of Victorian London. The show was immersive, so getting the atmosphere and feel of the location right was paramount.
We were under quite strict time constraints, with only a few hours to create the signs in the space. Working closely with the designer, I decided to create some stencils for the signs that I could then use once we were in the space, rather than painting the lettering from scratch. This was highly effective; the Lord Mayor of Westminster visited the production and personally commented on my design for The Crown's sign!
