The Terry O’Toole Theatre is a multifunctional performing arts venue in North Hykeham, Lincolnshire. The theatre joins North Kesteven School, North Kesteven Council and Lincolnshire County Council. Professional and amateur companies alike use the space, and it has become a popular venue for many of the district’s arts projects. The theatre is named in memory of Terry O’Toole, former Headteacher at North Kesteven; an unfailing supporter of the Arts.
Terry O’Toole Theatre turned to Distraction once again for graphic design of their season brochure. As ever, we worked hard to incorporate the busy programme of performing arts and workshops that this venue is known for, producing a vibrant and fun piece of design.
In past brochures, we have used a range of colours against a worn paper texture, to help give the booklet a bit more character and a unique personality. For this particular seasonal brochure, red and green were used widely to help the booklet keep in the festive spirit. Torn notepaper, hand-stamped imagery and layering were used throughout to create a fun booklet that audiences of all ages love to pick up and read, with plenty going on.
