Art Direction & Poster Design 

There is a really interesting bond between Memet Ali and Nazim Hikmet. Memet grew up with Nazim poems and is a very big fan of his poetry. But also the similarities between their life events are startling. Consequently we wanted to highlight the similarities between the performer and the writer by bringing an iconic picture of the poet and Memet Ali’s portrait.

We teamed up with the talented Takura for the photography.

Social Media

We have also designed a style for the the production companies Instagram grid and will be managing their socials throughout the play’s tour.
