Publication’s student designer chosen to create Artsfest promotions

ArtsFest 2015 poster designOffice of publications student designer Robert Adams was chosen to design promotional materials for this year’s Artsfest on Walnut Street May 2-3. His design will be featured on festival posters, t-shirts, banners and advertisements.

Adams has worked with a diverse client list of event planners, musicians, artists, promoters, social organizations and performance venues. Adams said the inspiration of his design was influenced by the organization’s existing logo.

“It’s a very active, joyful mark; and since the event is about bringing the community together to celebrate the arts and have a good time, I decided to build a pattern using the Artsfest logo that could be applied to many different materials. It’s also a spring event, so I painted some gestural leaf-like shapes to get across the feeling of the arts, growth and excitement.”
