The Process

The creation of the branding was a fun yet challenging design process. The goal for the festival branding was to tie in the colorful nature of the music with the liquid nature of the nonprofit Charity: Water. My original ideas and sketches either focused too much on water color aesthetics or came off too corporate looking. After a lot of additional concepting I reach two strong directions. The final direction encompassed the resonating vibe of the festival with a unique and versatile wordmark. I choose this direction because it was strong rather it was encasing fun bright colors or if it was plain white on a colored background. This direction was also simple and legible, which was another important factor.
