Annual programme for the Théâtre musical de Besançon. This time I completely dropped ITC Bodoni, to compose the whole programme in Mononi. Gradients appear inside the text, thanks to the wonderful stochastic print of Simon Imprimeurs.

A poster for the Théâtre musical de Besançon. The illustration is, as usual, very litteral : a crystal chandelier for a concert on the music of the Enlightenment. It is of course made of circles, and thanks to and thanks to a black pattern printed on the back, the chandelier lights up when the night comes, when the poster is backlit.

  • Théâtre musical de Besançon — Identity

Le Théâtre musical de Besançon (dir. Loïc Boissier) was created in 2008: it occupies Besançon Municipal Theater, an exceptional building by Claude-Nicolas Ledoux. The theater is designed according to a very innovative circular plan for the time (1786), which made it possible, in Ledoux's initial project, to see the scene from everywhere. This aspect is represented in a famous engraving, “View of the Besançon Theater in an eye”. This eye and the circle are the basis of the visual identity that I designed for the Theater. To illustrate the richness and variety of its programming, an extensive color code (which covers the entire spectrum) makes it possible to identify the different registers. The character used is the Bodoni ITC, from Sumner Stone, my favorite digital revival of the typeface cut by Giambattista Bodoni in the same year as the construction of this theater. It’s been progressively replaced by my own revival, shown here in the logotype : Mononi, a mono-linear Bodoni.

All the posters of the Theater are constructed from circles, in 2 colors. These abstract compositions evoke, rather than illustrate, the works. The solid colors correspond to the different disciplines.

In the first seasonal program of the Théâtre musical, special care is given to the texts: I proposed to keep a "literary" aspect, by grouping the photographs in a separate quire. Printed on a different paper, it offers another, transversal reading of the season. In the interior pages, the colored pads identify the register: Theater, Dance, Opera, etc.
