Designing an effective poster for an Edinburgh Festival show is hard. So much competition, so difficult to stand out.
As a designer I take more interest in them than most, I suppose, looking for ideas that I might be able to adapt myself some time. Most of them meet the essential objective of communicating straightforwardly what the show is, where it is, and when, but very few stand out. Here - in my view - are 10 of the better ones. Forgive the image quality, all these were snapped in the street when passing.
