Adelaide Festival Design Posters

For more than 50 years Adelaide Festival audiences have been delighted in an mix of challenging, inspiring and entertaining artists and performers. This vital and prestigious celebration of art from around the globe has defined South Australia as the nation’s premier festival state. With internationally acclaimed theatre productions, an eclectic array of world-class musicians, breathtaking dance pieces and striking visual arts displays, Adelaide’s warm March days and starry nights provide the ideal setting for this highly accessible event.

We have had the privilege of working with the Adelaide Festival for the past three years, and are luckily enough to have just been signed on for a fourth year. It has been a great experience working closely with the team for both parties.

As we are working with design talent Voice on the new artwork for 2015, we thought wouldn’t be good to have a look back at some of the Adelaide design posters to see how far graphic design has come.

Graphic Design Adelaide Community on Google+

We have finally seen the light, and joined Google+ by creating our own little design community named ‘Graphic Design Adelaide Community’ which anyone can join by clicking on the link.

We love all things design, and of course our little town of Adelaide in South Australia. We made this community not just for fellow Adelaideans, but for any one out there who has never been to Adelaide, so that one day they can come over and see what it has to offer.

Below is some of the cool stuff we have posted on there.

Adelaide logo design for favourite food event

Category: Adelaide logo design

The problem

Fork on the Road was an idea by Joe Noone, who was inspired by the Food Truck Events overseas. After coming back from his trips abroad, Joe approached us about creating a logo which had to clearly identify the idea of Food Trucks, Vans, Carts and Bikes all in one location, making the food itself the attraction and the event.

The approach

We started the Adelaide logo design project by researching the main theme of the fork on the road as per the title of the event. The ideas was not to take itself too seriously, and have fun with the idea. Using colours such as yellow and red in relation to the fast food industry, red triggers stimulation, appetite, hunger, it attracts attention.  Yellow triggers the feelings of happiness and friendliness.

The solution

We created an identity that is fun and colourful, it is now an Adelaide institution. It just works, and is recognisable around Adelaide.
