COMPLETED BACKDROP!

SYNOPSIS:

A local Dance studio needed a photo backdrop for their annual Dance Recital. Every year they do a corresponding photo spot backdrop to match that year's theme.


Originally I was to recreate the logo design by painting it directly on the backdrop. However, as I began to trace the design out, I realized it would be very flat and static. As I thought about the issue, I came up with the idea of recreated it in fiber wrapping using nails and colored string. Overall a far more Dynamic and dimensional solution for a Dance studio known for exceptional hands-on teaching and fun. 


I quickly pitched it to the owner and described what I was envisioning and received approval. It took a quick reassessment, retooling, and a bit more time then it would have initially (and some sore fingers) but I've always felt that doing things the right way even if it takes some quick decisions and a little bit of redesign makes for a better product. 


Plus, it came out beautifully and was perfect for the piece. In fact the Owner so loved it that post-show the studio cut it off the backdrop and its now hanging in their main studio.
