This was an advert put together to alert readers of the benefits of EuroProperty magazine going online and publishing as a pdf version rather than print. That strategy never happened but not wanting to waste some creative work here is the advert.

Poster and web/social media content for Trinity Laban Musical Theatre

A project that included an A3 poster, gif and jpgs for social media. Colourful and playful the idea is to attract a teen market to an online event over the Easter period.

Posters are important for any arts venue so here’s a few from the archives over the years. A hugely varied portfolio reflects the diversity of the programme in Blackheath.

Festival of Lights Diwali 2019 events A1 size poster

Guys and Dolls concert poster – Loved doing this one. Art deco font reflecting 1920s setting, New York silhouette skyline and tumbling dice coming out of the poster. Very happy with the outcome!

Ineresting commission this one. A thankyou poster for opera singer Matthew Rose – the scenes are from operas at Blackheath Halls over the years. What made this really special was that the printer was able to apply a gold foil instead of just printing the gold colour – the result was stunning. A shout out to Spectrum Graphics in Bexley for this.

A3 poster for Blackheath Halls summer opera. Loving the rose and the lime green spot colours.

A dramatic looking poster for another opera – Haydn’s The Creation


This was a full size banner for outside the building to promote World War I week back in 2014.

If I recall correctly this was used inside the building but was a large banner intended to showcase the event.
