Every great design has its beginnings in a great idea, whether your medium of choice is scenery, costume, lighting, sound, or projections. Unmasking Theatre Design shows you how to cultivate creative thinking skills through every step of theatre design - from the first play reading to the finished design presentation. This book reveals how creative designers think in order to create unique and appropriate works for individual productions, and will teach you how to comprehend the nature of the design task at hand, gather inspiration, generate potential ideas for a new design, and develop a finished look through renderings and models. The exercises presented in this book demystify the design process by providing you with specific actions that will help you get on track toward fully-formed designs. Revealing the inner workings of the design process, both theoretically and practically, Unmasking Theatre Design will jumpstart the creative processes of designers at all levels, from student to professionals, as you construct new production designs.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"I have read other design books and, while they are valuable, [Unmasking Theatre Design] is the first that I read from start to finish. The language and topics flowed wonderfully and I was fully engaged in what I was reading. I feel very strongly that [this] book is an asset to me as a designer and a resource that I will suggest to other designers in the future." - M.K. Hughes, Southern Illinois University

"Your book completely changed my perspective and approach to design, and I think this is going to do wonders for the way that I teach, and the way my students learn." - Julia Fisher, Theatre Teacher at Saint Martin de Porres High School
