Back Trip Festival
Posted 3 years ago and submitted by Vicky Scott | Share link:


I created this crazy, psychedelic 1960s flavour design for Back Trip, a Grateful Dead inspired music festival in the USA. It was an ideal project for me, inspired by ’60s hippy culture, nature and magical and mysterious elements. It was great fun making the design as weird and wonderful as possible. The brief was quite loose, based around the idea of an electric forest, although there were a few key elements I needed to include such as the Grateful Dead skulls, gnomes on toadstools and Jesus driving a hippy bus! I created the original collage and the agency (JCI Marketing, Redding CA) added in some photographic elements.

We really loved working with Vicky. We noticed her artwork immediatley when trying to decide on an artist, because unlike a lot of retro artwork out there hers had a very natural and playful feel to it. Vicky took our feedback on-board, stayed enthusiastic and delivered more than we were expecting. We couldn’t have asked for more and we’re very happy to have her artwork featured in our #TileArt gallery.
