This festival, our artwork was designed by society member Matt Scott. He’s designed 2 posters for us, one each inspired by the Green Man and May Queen, along with a variety of graphics seen throughout our digital exhibition, inspired by the festival.
Matt is a first year graphic design student, with a personal interest in printmaking, collage and ink painting. He’s also a BFS society member, he’s been in Obsidian, Fire Arch and Tech. On his design, “I wanted to capture something punchy, vivid & celebratory for the festival, so hand-printed letters and a minimal design seemed like a fun approach! The messy, ink splot feel comes from the aesthetic of DIY gig poster design, while the re-wilding and blood motifs come from hearing the May Queen & Green Man’s vision!I am dearly missing lugging around crowd barriers and juggling fire! But looking forward to seeing the projects people have prepared for BonFire 2021.”
