This poster advertises a theatre show by Tomaž Pandur based on Leo Tolstoy’s “War and Peace”. The aim of the design was to show the mirroring and the impact that war has on peace, and vice versa. The red cross, one of the main symbols in the show, has been picked up in the production process of the poster. The concept of “mirroring” was realised by silk-screening half of the cross and, while the colour was still fresh, folding the poster and pressing it against the other half, thus creating a full cross – a technique ensuring that every poster is unique.
