Because Marillion's own graphic Designer, Simon Ward, was busy creating the videos and artwork for their last album, F E A R, I was asked to design the logo for the band's 2017 Weekend. This year they took place in Holland, Poland, the UK and after the designs were completed Chile was also announced. Now the weekends are all but over I am posting here all the designs that I created for the event.

The essence of good design is simplicity and I tried to keep the 2017 Weekend Logos as simple and as flexible as possible while giving the event its own identifiable branding.

As the album to be played in full was .com I centred many of the designs around the concept of computer technology and symbols, bringing the .com idea into the 21st century. Thank God for the internet indeed.

Along with the logo ideas, included are mock-ups of posters and t-shirts as a visualisation of how the logos would look in practical terms. In the end the design was featured on many different products including bags, wristbands posters and even a teddy bear.

Although design one was the chosen design they others didn't go to waste. The microchip idea of design four was used for the UK weekend t shirts and the dates on the back of all the t shirts were done in the barcode style of design five.

All in all this was a really enjoyable project.
