Posters, billboards and logos for the
Waterloo Community Playhouse (WCP)

Posted on this site are the results of a poster, billboard and logo problem given to undergraduate graphic design students in the Department of Art at the University of Northern Iowa, in a course in Illustration, with Roy R. Behrens as instructor.

Our “real world” client for this problem was the Waterloo Community Playhouse in Waterloo, Iowa, as represented by Danny Katz (Marketing / Development Director) and Donna Baumgartner (Marketing Assistant). In April 2007, the 20+ students in the class were divided into two groups, for the purpose of designing posters for seven productions in the theatre’s upcoming 2007-08 season. One group designed the posters for four of the plays (including a billboard for one), while the other group designed posters for three plays as well as a logo that could be used globally.

On the following webpages (which you can easily link to by clicking on the titles of the plays at the top of this page) are thumbnail images of the students’ various proposals.

The copyright for each design belongs to the student who originated it.
