MPT Program Cover Designs

I’ve had the privilege of designing for the MPT (Maryland Public Television) program guide. I designed covers and inside feature pages for two issues; one that focused on the premiere of the final season of Downton Abbey, and another for the second season of Poldark. 

For the Downton Abbey artwork, I had photography provided by BBC/PBS, and used some photoshop techniques that brought out the drama in the cover photograph. In the feature and cover, I took cues from the period drama and incorporated scroll artwork and a damask pattern to set the tone for the show.

For the Poldark artwork, I took inspiration from the moody setting in the Cornish port. I also incorporated historic maps of England to embrace the historic drama of the show.
