Beat by Beat Press got their new poster by running a design contest:
Design whimsical poster for NEW MUSICAL
Check out Beat by Beat Press's Poster contest…
Entertainment & The Arts
We create and license contemporary musicals for kids age 7-14 to perform. The musicals are created by a team of writers in New York City and Los Angeles. We license these musicals to schools and community theaters around the world. We provide these organizations with a digital production kit that includes everything they need to produce the show. Our target audience is anyone who works with kids in theatre. This could be a school drama teacher, a community theatre director, or a youth arts instructor.
What's your vision?
We’re looking for a contemporary and whimsical poster for a new musical we are about to release. The poster and title art will give the show its visual identity and will be used to promote the show. It will also be available to schools who license the show for use on t-shirts, posters, programs, etc. The musical is called “Could You Hug A Cactus?" Below is a short description of the show: Based on a collection of whimsical poems by Phillip Van Wagoner, this musical revue follows a group of kids as they come together to create a show that’s bursting with poems, music and creativity. One by one, they each share their imaginative creations. We're looking for something that feels like it sprouted from a kids' imagination. It should feel hand-made, but with a contemporary style. Simple and clean is good. We DO NOT want anything too "kiddy" or “cartoony". The main visual element should be a cactus. The cactus should feel hand-made/illustrated. Some possible options to consider: - Cactus leaning over slightly for a hug - Cactus is made up of kid-like objects (pillows, stuffed animals, books, sheets, drawings, poster board, markers, pots, pans, and other whimsical household objects) - Contemporary cactus illustration - Simple blue textured background, with brown dirt at bottom TOP: The poster must include the Beat by Beat Circle Logo somewhere on the top. The colors can be changed/edited to match poster if needed. You can find the logo files here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/4vpv1urtndxc0e7/AADeQW79wE3qATAImm0eT8CSa?dl=0 TITLE & SUBTITLE: The title text of the musical, COULD YOU HUG A CACTUS?, must be large and clear. The title should also be able to stand on its own to put on a kids’ t-shirt. Underneath the title is should read in smaller size “A New Musical" (without the quotes) CREDITS: At the bottom should be the credits, which will read: Music & Lyrics by DENVER CASADO Book by JESSICA PENZIAS Based on the poems of PHILLIP VAN WAGONER So the text on the poster should be: - Logo - Title & Subtitle - Credits Please see attached rough-sketch mock-up for suggested placement of text/illustration. I also included other poster designs that are in styles that we like. Should have a very whimsical, simple and clean feel. Should all be illustrated or feel hand-made - no real photography. Prefer no stock photos. Thank you!
The resolution must be suitable for printing at poster size (40” x 27” one sheet, vertical) Would like the title text of the show to be able to stand on its own and be usable as a logo to print on T-Shirts, etc. You can see and read more about what we do at our website http://www.bbbpress.com

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their poster.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Beat by Beat Press collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.

And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
