It’s time for this year’s Genderfest! Genderfest is an East Van celebration of queer pride, that brings together a bunch of great events that celebrate gender diversity. It’s a festival I really believe in and I was so pleased to be asked back this year to do the promotional graphics!
We put together a poster listing all the events, with a luscious west coast background, which I got to use my wacom tablet to draw some ferns for. I also had a blast creating an alternate interpretation of the Genderfest unicorn logo into a simplified banner image, and update the website background to match. Expanding the web graphics side of things from last year, the Facebook banner I created lists all the events and describes the festival, in case folks want a quick cheat-sheet of what’s going on. The really cool part of this year’s promotions is a folding business card with all of the event listings. The idea is that instead of having a bulky flyer that people toss away or tape to their fridge at home, this is something they can carry around in their wallet and open it up when they’re out on the town.
The final Genderfest event is Unicorn Born – an epic East Van dance party (19+) happening this Sunday at the Maritime Labour Centre (1880 Triumph St). Check out the Genderfest website for Unicorn Born accessibility information. I’ll see you there with my dancing shoes on!
