Sarah Grimaldi, creative director for Xister, an advertising agency based in Rome, asked me to develop her concept for Dissonanze 09 music festival. My work consisted in 24 black and white 70x100 cm hatched illustrations. The visual/conceptual guidelines were to give a Darwinian scientific discovery twist to the artists involved into the festival. They should have looked like a hand renderd note of new animal species, something nobody has never seen before described in it's peculiar details by hand, pen and ink.
Here is the official image for the festival, neon blue graphic design and classy typography by Sarah Grimaldi:
And here are the illustrations for the artists. Design and Typo by allmighty Sarah Grimaldi.
If you had the opportunity to see the printed things (20 A3 folded flyers weree created for the event promotion, one for each artist), you can actually appreciate the hatching details. For your web viewing pleasure here are some close shots of the orginal b/w versions (most of them are 25% of the final 70x100 cm thing).
