Occasional Symphony presents Halloween… again!

Who remembers the creepy poster I designed last year for Baltimore’s Occasional Symphony?!

They asked me to design this year’s poster, too! How exciting. This year they are playing music to the silent 1920’s version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I opted for a very similar poster so people might recognize the event from year to year. What do you think?

Just as creepy!?

Occassional Symphony_Jekyll_outlines_updatedI certainly think so… **shudders**

Now I just have to think of a Halloween costume!

Cinco de Mayo celebration in Baltimore

Oh la la! My latest graphic design project was bilingual!

Need something fun to do this Cinco de Mayo? My coworker’s fiance’s symphony is putting on a concert in Baltimore on Saturday, May 4 in celebration of the holiday. There will be music, dancing, food and sangria — what could be better!?

I designed this poster for them and I love it — not obnoxiously Mexican themed, but definitely fun and flirty for the occasion.

Occasional Symphony performs HALLOWEEN

I’ve had the pleasure of working on a poster for my friend’s fiance’s symphony’s (say that three times fast) upcoming performance at the end of October.

Occasional Symphony is a new symphony in Baltimore whose goal is to celebrate holidays by playing concerts at unique venues all across Charm City. For their performance of Halloween (which is on, yes, Halloween), they rented an old church and will be  playing eerie music while showing the silent  horror film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. The creepy tunes were created by local composers — too cool!

I was so excited to help, especially on such a unique project! I was able to grab shots from the movie — the copyright has run out — and tweak them in Photoshop using the dry brush filter. I added a brick texture to the background and found a super creepy font to use. I think it looks fantastic, and Rachel, Norman and crew are really happy with it. Yay!

Here’s what I came up with:

If you live in or near Baltimore, make sure you check out an Occasional Symphony show! It sounds like they will be doing some really cool things.

Oh, and because I think it is super awesome, look at the shout out I got on their site *squeals of excitement*:
