Byron Bay Writer’s Festival

‘The Far North Coast and the Gold Coast are renowned for their local festivals. These festivals allow different subcultures to celebrate and express themselves in their own unique way’ …..words from one of my current study Briefs to select a local festival and develop a design concept for next year’s poster (A2 size), a related t-shirt & merchandising product.. I’ve chosen the Byron Bay Writers Festival.

Having decided to use photography as my basis for design development, I took myself on a photo shoot, experimenting with a variety of ideas, thumbnailing along the way, and then refining, adding the text, sponsors…etc.
