The Shakespeare Schools Festival (run by the Shakespeare Schools Foundation) is the UK’s largest youth drama festival, offering students from all backgrounds the opportunity to perform Shakespeare on their local professional stage. Which is brilliant. The foundation that runs the festival asked me to create a promotional pack of exercise cards to send out to schools, ‘to challenge, support and inspire teachers to inject some SSF style creativity into their classrooms’. I created a buckram-lined box with 24 foil-blocked cards. The pack came in four sections, so I used a separate colour foil for each section. The exercises each featured quotes from Shakespeare’s plays. I knew these could look fantastic lining the walls of a classroom, so I set them in bold, engaging lettering on the fronts of the cards, with the exercises on the reverse.
