Towards the end of last month I had the opportunity to work on something ‘just for fun’. Every now and again it’s just great to work on something where the client is happy with whatever you produce. Solas is a Scottish based music and arts festival which gives Scottish artists a ‘space’ to express themselves.
Following the event this year, an open call was put out to the Solas festival community requesting creative concepts for the re-brand of the festival. Now, if you’ve followed this blog, even in it’s very short life, you’ll appreciate my view on crowd sourcing but this was different. There was no ‘prize’ just a brief.
In my book this sort of scenario equals ‘just for fun’. So, I set to work and created a new logo and ‘brand identity’ for the festival. Since submitting it I’ve heard nothing, which either means they don’t check their email very often or they’ve chosen something else. Either way it was great to work on something ‘just for the heck of it’.
Now, back to work!
