Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We need a playbill/ poster/postcard image for our play SERIAL KILLER BARBIE, a black comedy musical (this is light/funny dark not a horror dark. (this will be seen by the who's who of Hollywood!)
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
The cover of our playbill. Important to show dark humor. There are several ways you can take this. Images include: a trio of mean Barbie-esque girls who are beautiful and unattainable, lunch boxes, American Girl Dolls,and blackboards. It's a musical and the songs include 21 Ways to Kill A Debbie, Middle School Sucks and Paper Bag Lunch. One idea is the back of a girl writing on a blackboard several times "I will not kill the Debbies". Other idea is using colorful lockers. Or take creative liberty...just show us something simple, funny and iconic!The key is to really simply (and with comedy) sell the title! (no actual images of barbie dolls or american girl dolls so we don't get sued)
the title SERIAL KILLER BARBIE the musical should be part of the image.... (look at Kinky Boots the musical)
This is a black comedy. It is funny and humor (and smart/clean design) is important. Barbara (Barbie) goes from kindergarden through high school desperate to belong to the hip crowd of mean girls (ambitious Debbie, ditzy Debby and uber b'yatch Debbi). When she realizes she can't join them...she kills them. The important thing to do is to stress the comedy....would love this done simply...the name itself SERIAL KILLER BARBIE is funny enough...it doesn't have to be overdone, just convey the black humor. (black meaning light humor, not dark humor)
