2014 GATHERING OF THE VIBES music festival - EVENT POSTER

July 31 - August 3, Bridgeport, CT.

 

The Brief:  Design a poster that honors the heritage and tradition that makes the Gathering of the Vibes Music Festival so unique. Feel free to stay within the psychedelic realm of previous year's poster designs or go with an aesthetic that is completely different.

My Plan: Research psychedelic gig posters for inspiration, keep color palette limited to 2-3 colors, incorporate typography into design by hand-drawing it...limit the amount of stroke used in design; choose native animal as focus of design...

 

 

 

I decided to adjust the colors a bit, dirtying up the pink, desaturating the brown;

added some minor strokes to the feathers on the bird
