This year's summer festivals are leaving us with some sweaty memories & more sweet prints to carry back home
Usually, we are not highly impressed by the posters of the most famous festivals and Glastonbury's official poster for 2014 is to blame. "What were they thinking of?” was the obvious question of any graphic designer at the sight of this; therefore, we decided to make a small report on the level of excellence of this summer’s music festivals. Checking the visuals around the globe, we are typographically touched by some less popular, but of equal importance regarding their line up, festivals.
Distorted letters are proven again to be a high trend, standing out of the grid, in monochromatic but not-dull way. Other excellent Illustrative treatments remind us how visually charming is the right combinations of the color palette with typography. Versatile and textured elements work delightfully to provide an extraordinary approach of 3D type, while hand crafted characters are just on the right and loyal side of the music psychedelic scene. So, no matter if you are a dub, indie, electro or psych fan, these music posters are striking and are here to stay but a question remains unanswered. Do organizers, designers and marketing experts in such a creative field treat typography with love?
