Print is not dead, and Los Angeles-based Spittn Image proves it with this campaign for Pose, FX’s latest series from Ryan Murphy and Co., that’s as dramatic and colorful as the characters it showcases.
Pose tells the story of the LGBTQ community in 1980s-era lower Manhattan, who found new families in their chosen houses and all came together at glamorous balls to compete and socialize.
Spittn Image, led by founding Executive Producer Melissa Ciampa, created this print and integrated social campaign in New York. Ciampa and her team worked closely with Todd Heughens, FX Networks’ senior vice president of print design, as well as photographer Pari Dukovic in New York and photographer Matthias Clamer in Los Angeles to create the strikeing images.
The series features the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles, as well as the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ actors ever for a scripted series. The transgender cast includes Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore, Hailie Sahar and Angelica Ross, who co-star alongside Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek, Billy Porter, Charlayne Woodard, and newcomers Ryan Jamaal Swain, Dyllón Burnside and Angel Bismark Curiel.
Pose was co-created by Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals, with Murphy directing the first two episodes. The series is executive produced by Murphy, Falchuk, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall and Sherry Marsh. Canals and Silas Howard serve as co-executive producers, and Janet Mock, Our Lady J and Erica Kay also serve as producers. The eight-episode first season is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.
Pose premieres June 3 on FX.
