This will be a fun, exciting project for a great designer who knows what he or she is doing! :)
This is a for a window poster (11x17) design for a new, fully-licensed, non-profit charity fundraiser production of the mega-musical "Les Miserables". This is not for commercial theater, but benefits our volunteer youth organization.
Here's what should make this project even easier for you...
Because we want this poster to have a very recognizable look for our marketing, we have licensed the well-known logos of Les Miserables as part of our performance contract. They are attached in the "les miserables design elements" zip file. The famous "girl" (also attached) needs to be the main logo in our poster. You not have use the the girl exactly how she appears in the "design elements" files. That's simply the basic elements we were supplied with the license.
We have also attached sample pictures of other Les Mis design elements that we like, and have titled the graphics by the aspects of the design that we like. We do not necessarily want your design to be exactly like any of these, but hopefully this will give you some good ideas and inspiration. The poster should be instantly recognizable with the girl and Les Mis font however.
We have provided all the text that should go on this poster, along with instructions about the importance of different parts of the text.
For the rest, we'd like to see what YOUR brilliant design mind comes up with and then we can go from there!
Keep in mind, even though this is a volunteer, non-profit, charity fundraising show... we have high standards with our volunteer cast and crew, so we want to communicate that this is a professional-quality theater production. We would like this to look as good as a Broadway show's poster would be. (We need to fill as many seats as possible so we can raise money for our youth program!) :)
The poster should be designed to be 11 inches by 17 inches. We need this in several file formats (.psd/.ai, .jpg, .png), including a high quality print-ready .pdf with and without a 1/8" bleed.
If you have ANY questions, just ask! I'm sure we'll have a few more suggestions and changes/adjustments to add once we see your cool designs. Again, this should be an easy, fun project for a skilled designer.
If you believe that small details truly matter and love to create new, awesome designs, I'd love to hear from you!
P.S. I'm a volunteer with this charity organization, but because I also work for a business with a lot of design needs...I love to have ongoing relationships with awesome designers. If you do a great job on this, my other company will have future design needs in the coming months, too. We have done 1-on-1 projects with our previous design contest winners.
