Listowel Writers’ Week is Ireland’s oldest literary and arts festival where writers, artists and poets gather in the beautiful Kerry heritage town of Listowel in Co Kerry, Ireland. This year the festival would have been celebrating it's 50th anniversary, sadly due to the covid19 pandemic, we will have to wait until 2021 for that.
The brief was to develop 2 posters - one for the main festival and a second for the kids programme. The designs would be adapted for use on the festival programmes and other promotional material.
Full process was done in Procreate - a first for me :)) Really enjoyed the challenge of working with only 11 layers and creating hand drawn type in isometric - this is probably the first time I’ve used isometric since I was at college :))))
