AIGA Flux 2017 - Merit Winner

This invitation project was done for my History of Graphic Design class while at Samford University. My job was to create an invitation for the mock trial "Shakespeare in Question" put on by the Shakespeare Theatre Company. Our requirements were to use the provided text along with the Shakespeare Theatre Company logo and to make the invitation fit a 5 x 7 envelope.  

In celebration of four hundred years of Shakespeare, the Shakespeare Theatre Company hosted its annual dinner and mock trial "Shakespeare in Question." There are many theories surrounding the authorship of Shakespeare. Some believe that Shakespeare's plays were actually written by many people and others believe that "Shakespeare" was never actually William Shakespeare but someone else. This mock trial puts these theories and the identity of Shakespeare into question.  

My intent for this project was to create an elegant design suite that balanced both Renaissance design and modern design and that portrayed the questioning of identity.
