A poster and programme design for the Royal Irish Academy of Music's 2019 Opera, Banished — a modern opera which tells the story of women who were transported to Australia in the late 18th century and their survival and courage on-board the dangerous voyage.
This project focuses on the six female charachters in this opera. With emphasis on the females eyes I wanted to create a sombre tone with a sense of desperation and almost a little hope. The lack of colour projects a meloncholic and a dire atmosphere. The treatment of the poster was then carried through to the event programme.
