boi boi is dead


Boi Boi is Dead centres around those directly affected by the premature death of a larger-than-life jazz musician. For this production at the West Yorkshire Playhouse, O Street created an illustration and design strategy to capture the essence of the story.

Each character was sketched by hand to create an authentic, raw feel–with the final illustration featuring the two women central to Boi Boi’s life emerging from his silhouette. The hand-crafted design is infused with vibrance and colour, echoing the cultural and musical influences of the play.

Now please excuse us, we’ve got coffee to drink and jazz to enjoy…
