Super 8: The Play

Playing now at the Edmonton Fringe Festival, local playwrights Mark Hopkins and Charles Netto tell a lovely little story about two strangers meeting in the night at the first, ever, Super 8 motel (now hotel). Our challenge was to tell the story using the hotel chain’s typefaces and colours without giving the impression that this was an endorsement, or advertisement for Super 8. We created this poster – and thanks to the playwrites’ ability to really get in to the hotel idea – a die-cut door knocker version.
