Cheltenham Festivals: Jazz
Posted 3 years ago and submitted by Vicky Scott | Share link:

I was commissioned last year to design the posters for the four Cheltenham Festivals (Jazz, Classical, Literature and Science). I’m delighted to be able to share the first of these designs to go live. Cheltenham didn’t want very obvious jazz imagery (musical notes, silhouettes of musicians, etc.), but they did want something vibrant and inclusive. I’ve created a slightly Matisse-inspired poster hinting at the night and day aspect of the festival, a sense of movement and flowing lines to guide the viewer through the design and suggest the expressiveness of the music.

Vicky is friendly and creative, and her style is bright, fun and very eye-catching. Working in stages from rough concept to finished art, she was open to feedback and willing to accommodate amends and a couple of extras along the way. It was an absolute pleasure working with her and hope I get the opportunity again in the near future.
