I was asked by Graham Sanderson (Chairman of York Settlement Community Players) and Jan Kirk to help create promotional material for 'Rohilla'.
This play I found very interesting and it really brought out my creativity reading about the incident.

"It's been a pleasure working with Michael on posters, flyers, animation and programmes for York Settlement Community Players' production of Rohilla. His imaginative flair is matched by his flexibility and his skill in adapting ideas creatively to suit different media and to meet our requirements. His eye for detail and willingness to check and re-check copy have been invaluable. I'm happy to recommend his work without reservation."

"Yoruba Arts Festival as a charity uses the services of volunteers for some services we know we couldn’t ordinarily afford. We couldn’t have been any more delighted to have met and used the services of Michael as our graphic designer for the year 2014. From start to finish, Michael was efficient, diligent and really went out of his way to accommodate our requests and requirements. He remained courteous and polite throughout the process and was willing to go that extra mile to see that we met with our printing deadlines. In terms of his artistic and creative designs you can be assured Michael will come up with something to suit your needs. We know it is difficult to find people with such high level design skills like Michael, willing to volunteer his skills for our charity and event and for this we cannot thank him enough for coming through in our time of need. Thank you Mr Rosser. At the Yoruba Arts Trust we so love his work, we would be very very happy to recommend Michael's services to all we know. We wish we could keep him all to ourselves for such good work he produces but we most definitely will be coming back to use his services. Best wishes to you Michael and thanks again from everyone here, we will be in touch and best wishes for the future." Regards Abeke Coker Festival Manager Yoruba Arts Festival - London

I was asked by York Settlement Community Players to design a programme and banner for their theatre performance of 'The Stepmother'.
Having already worked with them before to create a poster and flyer for the same play, I knew the look and feel that the play had.
From first ideas to the final design, communication between me and the YSCF was very informative and responsive.
I worked very closely with Ellen Cole (YSCF Campaign Marketer - www.ellencole-marketing.co.uk) who was a pleasure to collaborate with.
I hope to work with the YSFC again with future projects.

"As a York based Community Theatre Company, with a highly regarded and longstanding presence in the area, York Settlement Community Players have been delighted to work with someone as creative, intuitive and professional as Michael Rosser.
We engaged Michael to design promotional and production material for our Northern Premiere Production of Githa Sowerby's The Stepmother. This project was very dear to our hearts and so it was crucial to secure someone who would feel as passionate about the play as we did. Michael fitted this brief perfectly and we were privileged when he agreed to attach his graphic design skills to our enterprise.
As a consequence, Michael designed promotional flyers and posters for our production. These items needed to fit specifications laid down by ourselves and York Theatre Royal and Michael worked closely with all parties to ensure they were fit for purpose. The flyers and posters were made available for social media and online use, as well as being designed for a printed remit.
In addition to this work, Michael also designed the Production Programme for The Stepmother (on sale to audiences) and, at the same time, he created a unique promotional banner for the production. This banner was displayed prominently in the foyer at York Theatre Royal and featured photographs of the cast in evocative 1920s style, echoing the period of The Stepmother.
All of Michael's undertakings for YSCP have been widely admired and have contributed greatly towards raising the public's awareness of The Stepmother (play and production) and the kudos of our Theatre Company.
*For every aspect of the design specification Michael has worked closely with Ellen Cole, who heads up YSCP's publicity campaign, in association with photos taken by YSCP photographer, Mike Oakes (www.michaeljoakes.com).
YSCP's working relationship with Michael has been a pleasure. He has the ability to perceive the big picture, while at the same time keeping focused on an attention to detail. No query is too trivial for him to deal with and his manner is always upbeat and polite. Michael remains calm and flexible when responding to the changing demands of design briefs. He is prompt and encouraging and has a wealth of expertise at his finger tips.
YSCP has the highest regard and praise for Michael Rosser and we would be delighted to work with him again.

Beryl Nairn, (YSCP) York Settlement Community Players' Membership Secretary, writes: Michael Rosser designed the flyers and posters for our prestigious community theatre première production of Githa Sowerby's The Stepmother, which is being performed at York Theatre Royal Studio (March 2014). Michael laid out our chosen image and text exactly to our specifications and we were delighted that he brought his own artistic flair to the final versions. Michael got everything print ready for us (perfect first time) - nothing is too much trouble for him. He is professional, courteous, prompt and an absolute pleasure to deal with. We can't praise Michael highly enough and are looking forward to liaising with him for our theatre production programmes and for our future design requirements. We are very grateful to our Publicity Officer, Ellen Cole, for recommending Michael Rosser to YSCP.
