Shakespeare’s Globe

Step into the light

The Sam Wanamaker Playhouse is Shakespeare’s Globe new indoor candle lit theatre.

To celebrate the new venture Shakespeare’s Globe tasked us with developing a visual look and feel far removed from their iconic outdoor theatre space which would reflect the intimacy and refined nature of the space.

The Theatre design was based on old sketches and diagrams of a traditional Jacobean theatre.

After in-depth research into the era we developed a family of Jacobean patterns which including a hand drawn floral design. These patterns could stand alone or interact with photography.
