Independent designer and art director Émilie Chen breaks down the steps that go into producing striking theatre posters, through minimalist graphic illustrations or in collaboration with talented photographers who share her love of making the magic happen in camera.

Using mood boards, concept sketches and behind-the-scenes anecdotes, Émilie will talk about subverting stereotypes, developing a distinctive style by working around her perceived weaknesses as a designer, and how going beyond the brief landed her a dream job at the National Theatre.
