I was reminded of these rejected visuals recently, they were my first ideas for the Bath International Music Festival, which you’ll see elsewhere on the blog ended up taking quite a different direction.

The brief, for something fresh and summery first took me in this direction, but not for long. Artistic Director of the Festival (and friend) Joannna MacGregor said she wanted my landscape photographs to evoke the feel for a summer festival instead.

She also favoured a less decorative look, and liked the Univers font I’d been using on her sleeve designs around this time, so it was all change.
