Frances Castle – HMS Belfast

Frances Castle was commissioned by design agency NB: Studio to produce artwork for a year long ad campaign for HMS Belfast to be used on Underground posters, leaflets, on-site display adverts, e-flyers and print adverts.
The concept of the project was to reveal the many levels of fun to be had onboard HMS Belfast and to highlight some of the more quirky facts about life below deck. The poster had to appeal to children and families and incorporate actual photographs from the site, as well as the ship itself.
