The 20th anniversary of the Ulysses Theater

The Ulysses Theatre was established in 2001 by one of Croatia's most famous contemporary actors, the internationally recognised Rade Šerbedžija along with his project partner, the writer Borislav Vujčić, this renowned summertime theatre entertains with evenings of classic and contemporary theatre, music and dance. Nearly all summer performances take place beneath the open sky in the 150-year-old Austro-Hungarian Fort Minor, which houses three separate amphitheatres on different levels. The fort is located on the Mali Brijun island of Brijuni part of Brijuni National Park. The historic setting is wonderfully atmospheric and performances sometimes use the space very imaginatively. Despite a classical repertoire, their productions can be very grunge, partly because of their environment.

When I was invited to create the posters and billboards for the 20th anniversary of the theatre, I decided to create something in that style, classical / grunge. To get the appropriate typography I chose my go-to hand letterer Nicky Lindeman.
