Thompson Design creates identity for Priestley plays

Thompson Design has created an identity, brochures, programmes, leaflets, postcards and book covers for a season of JB Priestley plays at Leeds’ West Yorkshire Playhouse, which opened last weekend. The design work sought to avoid the ‘traditional 1930s imagery’ often used to promote Priestley plays such as An Inspector Calls, says Thompson creative director Ian Thompson. ‘The identity and literature has a contemporary, edgy look,’ he adds. The first play, Johnson over Jordan, stars Patrick Stewart and runs until 29 September.
