The Yellow Wallpaper

Movementworks contacted me to create some visual touchpoints for their theatre adaption of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s eerie short story, The Yellow Wallpaper. Charlotte, hysterical and suffering from post-natal depression, is prescribed rest treatment by her doctor husband and confined to a yellow-wallpapered room for the summer of 1892. The walls are covered with complex patterns and secrets that unfold a story that explores mental illness, toxicity and patriarchy. I created a type-based logo, promotional postcards, posters, programmes, invitations, a small book of the script and art directed the photo shoot.
