Studio Dotto's bespoke Art Deco-inspired typography for Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse Theatres

For its new theatre season, Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse theatres approached Manchester-based Studio Dotto to create these typographic-led 'what's on' guides and brochures.

The theatres produce brilliant shows that respond to their time and place. And their mission is to dazzle and inspire, reflecting the aspirations and concerns of their audiences and fuel civic pride.

"They wanted their guides and complimentary literature to reflect each season and radiate a feeling of welcoming and warmth," says Danielle Molyneux, Dotto founder. "We developed a series of bespoke typography alongside the guide layouts to use throughout their upcoming seasons."

The type was initially inspired by architectural details and nods at a kind of Art Deco history with a fresh and forward-looking twist. Each season features a new type configuration, complimentary details and vibrant colour combination. The bold and colourful feel was designed to stand out in the leaflet racks and feel collectable.

The literature was printed by Synergy Liverpool and photographed by Laura Hutchinson. To find out more about Studio Dotto, visit
