California Suite Poster

Problem: Create a promotional poster for Neil Simon's California Suite that communicates the themes and tone of the play using typography as the primary element.

The play tells four separate stories about people who come together in one hotel suite (room 203), where their relationships are pushed to the brink, and each is forced to either resolve their issues or tumble over the edge (figuratively).


"Hello, operator? I'd like to report odd noises coming from room 203."


To communicate the zany, comedic tone of the play, a hand-rendered type was used to imply the shape of the hotel.



Through color, composition, and the typographic treatment, this poster captures the dark humor and over-the-top drama of this play about relationships in peril.
