A graphic or publicity designer
creates the printed posters and flyers – essential to make people aware of the show. This job is sometimes taken on by the publicist
, production designer
. Creative ideas are the only prerequisite: it’s not necessary to know any graphics programs back-to-front as there are plenty of helpful computer experts around.
Once the poster is ready in digital form, it needs to be printed. Quotes from different companies are useful as prices differ significantly and fluctuate regularly. Sometimes the publicity designer
is enlisted to design
the programme too: depending on the show this varies from a photocopied slip of paper to a full-colour printed booklet.
