Type treatments for Mermaid at the Nottingham Playhouse

Shared Experience is renowned for its thrilling adaptions of literary classics. Plundering Hans Christian Andersen’s haunting tale for its dark, erotic, mythic power, writer and director Polly Teale transports the story to a contemporary setting in this spell binding new production at The Nottingham Playhouse, one of the United Kingdom’s leading producing theatres since its foundation in 1948.

Inspired by the sea, Scandinavian mythology, and runic inscriptions, we created a simple but striking hand drawn type treatment for use across the promotion of the play.
