Macbeth Poster

Project
Create an arresting poster for Shakespeare’s play, Macbeth.
Concept
I wanted to highlight Lady Macbeth’s role in pushing the title character to action. The dagger becomes the lethal connection that binds her to her murderous husband, as well as dividing them. To balance the strong black and white graphical elements, I created a swirling liquid effect for the blood in Photoshop.
