Poster Design for Fat Pig

We were hired by Wisdom Tooth Theatre Project to create a series of posters for their 2015-2016 season. The second in the series was for their production of Fat Pig. The show is a comedy about a young man who falls in love with an overweight woman. When he faces the ridicule of his friends and co-workers for his attraction to her, he finds out if his feelings for her are strong enough to overcome his embarrassment.

For this design we decided to take inspiration from the Pop Art movement due to its focus on mass media and popular culture (media and popular opinion and a critique of them being central to our ideas of physical beauty).
