The light and happy colour themes of the poster fit with the play’s genre. The catchline? I’m unapologetic about that one. It just had to be.
The rose is symbolic of the (failed) love between Troilus and Cressida, and the sword is symbolic of the Trojan War in which the story takes place. I chose red and black as accent colours: red for the rage, the blood, and the passionate love, and black for the death and suffering that occurs.
