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.
As we approach the most wonderful time of the year, we ask creative directors what gift someone should buy a designer for Christmas.
The digital design consultancy has appointed a new head, who will oversee its six global offices and lead on growing the business in size and helping it make more money.
Send us photos of your offices decorated for Christmas, and we’ll be publishing a selection of the best ones next week.
