Promotional materials for a play, including a two-sided 5"x7" glossy flyer and an 11"x17" poster. Dead Special Crabs is a hilarious dark comedy by Dan Kitrosser that combines a buddy road trip, serial killer, poetry readings, coming out, and crabbing. I had a lot of fun creating an original illustration that captured the dark humor. Early versions had one bullet hole in the road sign, and director Kristin Skye Hoffmann had the best kind of feedback: “What I’d like to do is add a LOT more bullet holes” and “WHAT IF… you put a splatter of blood across the whole card?”

The team loved the final piece and gave me a signed poster.

Kristin Skye Hoffmann: "Maya is always my go-to graphic designer.  She is thoughtful, creative, a great listener and always professional.  She honors her deadlines, is clear about drawing realistic expectations concerning rates and product. She never fails to stay in communication as she works.  She is wonderful to work with and I think she spoiled me on hiring anyone else for my graphic design needs!"
