Fairview on the Green : Chili on the Green event poster

2010 Fairview on the Green event poster for the City of Fairview.

I wanted this poster to pop out, feel like a warm summer day and a family event. The radial bands emulate rays of the sun and the swirling design adds texture and movement. All the colors are warm tones. The illustration of two birds holding a banner offers a sense of playfulness. This is the first year the event’s name has been changed to Fairview on the Green (prior it was Chili on the Green). The task was to communicate equal importance of the new event name and the chili cookoff.

boxes41This is a sample of Maggie Casey’s work. She’s a young (and very cool) artist who I discovered during last year’s Portland Open Studios that Chris Maier was kind enough to get passes for those of us who wanted to partake in the event. This happens to be one of my favorites. Her work is done using sewing thread and fibers. This one leaves me feeling like I’m floating in a dream. Yum.

Here’s a link to her site and where some of her work is going to be on display.
