AN EPIC SAGA
The Hammer Trinity is series of plays all written and performed by the House Theatre of Chicago, spanning three years. Starting with the Iron Stag King in 2012, then the Crownless King in 2013, and finally the Excelsior King in 2015, the trilogy follows the story of a hero’s journey. Performed individually as they were released and then as a 9-hour marathon in the final season, the Hammer Trinity received excellent acclaim and was a blast for us to work on from start to finish.
A STORY SPANNING YEARS
The challenge in designing collateral for a show spanning three years was to present something for both new and returning audience members. We designed posters that promoted the story of each show specifically and used design elements like maps and star charts throughout all three programs to nod not only at the single story but also at the larger story.
