Sarah Hyndman Graphic Design has created a brochure for London’s Almeida Theatre winter season and produced marketing materials for its opening production, Brighton Rock (pictured). Adapting the summer season imagery, the ‘A’ from the Almeida brand is used to illustrate the themes of each season’s productions. This winter, the theatre returns to traditional plays and this is illustrated graphically with the ‘A’ in the form of an illuminated letter and a range of ornate patterns and motifs.
