The creation of exciting visual stories blooms from a successful navigation of the collaborative artistic journey. This new text guides beginning directors, designers, and performers through the many interwoven relationships and communication styles used during this journey and details the context, vision, parameters, materials, aesthetics, documentation, and facilitation of the design and production process.

A theatrical designer must address two questions when designing a production: What is the play about and what is the play like? To find the metaphor within a play is to unlock inspired and unique design concepts. Theatrical Design: An Introduction is about how to find the design idea for a production and what to do with that idea once identified. This book emphasizes script analysis and interpretation specifically for designers: how to release meaning and design inspiration from lines and characterization in a script. It then explains the artistic elements and principles of design—the skills necessary to create the design visualized. Concepts are illustrated with examples from theatre, film, art, architecture, and fashion that explore professional and historic use of conceptualization and metaphor. Theatrical Design: An Introduction imparts the tools designers need to innovate off the page.
