Design & art direction for the 2013 production of The Glass Menagerie on Broadway.

Jillian Adel is an LA-based art director, designer, and letterer, whose work tends to be powered by an interesting typographical treatment. This skill with letters was clearly a great asset to her work in entertainment advertising for Broadway and off-Broadway theater. Lettering is a great technique for adding personality to otherwise-similar imagery (headshots and action shots from rehearsals).
