a poster of two nuns, lit by pink and purple neon lights
The duotone approach to the neon-lit portrait highlights the core differences between the two protaganists of the play.

I was approached to create the posters, programmes and further print and digital marketing materials for NUNS, an exciting new production with an all-woman cast and production team. Photographer Elise Dumontet provided me with beautiful photos of the cast which I edited to create a coloured neon glow, reflecting the artificial light of the neon illustrations that surround them.

I designed a selection of neon lights to be used throughout the marketing material. I was particularly inspired by kitschy Catholic art and decor, alongside signage for traditionally feminine spaces: nails salons and beauty parlours.
