Cirque du Soleil Poster

The stunning tents for the Cirque du Soleil have just finished up an all too brief stint in the Atlanta area. I just had to do something to memorialize the event. The costumes are so stunning...there is so much artistry involved in the production. This is probably one of the few projects that remained relatively unchanged from start to finish. An idea that really didn't need that much manipulation to it. Since most of the advertising consists of just a head and shoulders shot of a costumed character, I thought I'd stick close to their already established visual identity. The little men and the makeup like a circus tent are an ode to the traditional circus spectacle.
