SPECTRUM (COLLABORATIVE) Context: Designival is the North's biggest and most established design festival of 2012. Taking place in Liverpool on November 22nd - 23rd at some of the coolest new venues in the city, Designival will feature a whole host of must-see events intended for the design obsessed. Whether you're a beginner or a pro, an architect or a web designer - all we ask is that you appreciate every aspect of design, from the intricate balance between concept and creation, to digital and print.
Brief Design a campaign that promotes Designival and engages the target audience (design professionals) through a campaign message: “Design is....” Produce a promotional campaign that showcases the beauty in experimental print forms and manual processes. By using mixed media, combining digital and analog formats such as Photoshop, film photography and screen-printing, create an exciting and engaging body of work that best promotes this creative event. The campaign can be provocative, challenging, humorous and can work online, offline, virally, guerrilla – as you like.
