UPDATE2: If you strongly feel you need to use photos of the singers, I am attaching photos from our previous tour (I don't have the current photos yet, so I will attach them in the next round) - bear in mind that we either have to include about 13-15 people, or create separate poster variants for each individual member.
UPDATE: Thank you everyone for posting! I think that the main thing I would like to add for the concept is that we need it to be epic - it's a really big-style concert, with auditoriums spanning 1000-2000 seats each. We are looking for more theatricality, and something that suggests a professional show closer to the Broadway and West End than to a summer festival.
Hello there, everyone!
We are currently planning a concert tour. It starts on November and ends on March 2020. For the past three years our concert posters were just the all of the singers lined up with the concert name, so we decided to look for something more creative this time around.
Since our main repertoire consists of musical theatre songs, we are looking for an poster that's more of an illustration in itself, not a photo - if you google "musical theatre poster" you will generally get the idea. The more creative, the better. This specific tour is named "Accantus Live" or "Accantus Live 2.0" (we're not quite sure yet, depending on how it fits on the poster).
The main power in Studio Accantus is definitely our many singers and our family-like vibe inside the team. On previous tours, we were focusing mainly on classical musicals, since we were performing with an orchestra - but starting with the first "Accantus Live", we went with a different, more pop-rock instrumentation (drums, guitars, piano and a string trio) and leaned more towards contemporary musicals like "Hamilton", "Dear Evan Hansen" or "The Greatest Showman".
The information that have to find their way onto the poster:
- the name of the tour (Accantus Live or Accantus Live 2.0)
- the names of the cities: Poznań, Warszawa, Kraków, Wrocław, Gdynia, Szczecin, Lublin, Bydgoszcz, Białystok, Zabrze, Łódź, Częstochowa, Toruń, Gdańsk
- in smaller font, the names of the vocalists: Sylwia Banasik, Paulina Grochowska, Zuzanna Makowska/Małgosia Kozłowska, Małgorzata Chruściel/Aleksandra Kosiorek, Kamil Dominiak/Paweł Izdebski/Kuba Jurzyk/Paweł Skiba/Janek Traczyk, Adrian Wiśniewski
- and the band members: Ada Dobrowolska, Andrzej Jaworski, Paulina Kusa, Jakub Laszuk, Małgosia Latoszek, Kasia Mazurkiewicz, Artur Rapacz, Artur Siejka
- some space for logos
The poster may be horizontal or vertical, if it can be used in both versions - even better (vertical for print, horizontal for social media and website). But it's the least important thing out of all these mentioned above.
Looking forward to seeing your designs!
