Same Love by Beau Preston

I’ve been following the blog of Australian graphic artist, Beau Preston, and I wanted to repost his awesome drawing, Same Love.  Nothing says same-sex marriage like storm troopers who are soul-mates.

The Whole Enchilada

I recently had the great pleasure of designing the print campaign for Genderfest.  This involved a poster, several ads for the Pride Guide, as well as a flyer.

As it was a multi-day event with lots of information I really needed to use the flyer’s real-estate to it’s fullest.  Instead of just advertising the festival as a whole, I wanted to have the relevant “who”, “what”, “when”, and “where” fully available for all of the festivities – essentially for the flyer to be something people would pick up and keep like an event guide.  Genderfest already had a website, and the layered colour scheme was their background image – it was the perfect visual element I could lend to structuring  information.  Rotating the image created some visual interest for the poster, which needed a different kind of structure to keep the test bold and visible from a distance.

Working with the Genderfest team was a joy and I’m so excited for next year!  Check out the awesome work they do at www.genderfest.ca
