The first thing that should be mentioned about this piece is its superb sense of balance. The two radio towers provide a good anchoring point in their corners, and the eye creates a literal focal point that leads its way back to the towers. The shape of the eye is also of note, in they way it curves to the waves given off by the towers. It is a very pleasing shape, and adds elegance as well as poignancy.

The message itself is also clearly evocative of the images displayed, all the while not being overly blunt about it. An excellent example of the power of the simplicity of design.

I definitely like the typography used for this poster, as much as the overall design using the colors to convey what it means. Very nicely done c: Though I have never seen the play it's advertising, I think it still gives a good overall appearance.

:la: A retro poster! These are all too rare to find done with precision and refined, thought style. A bit darker and more contrast-y would have been better though :)
