The Politician is the first Ryan Murphy series to premiere on Netflix that revolves around the political aspirations of Payton Hobart, a wealthy Santa Barbarian. Our marketing campaign revolved around the over-the-top wealth and extravagance of the characters.
I created the following series of “oil painted” portraits of each character. These were each posted on The Politician’s social media accounts during the pre-launch phase of the show, as well as a bespoke carousel for Ryan Murphy’s personal instagram. The portraits were also displayed in the Netflix office lobby in Los Gatos, California.
