Auckland Writers Festival poster



The Auckland Writers Festival is a large literary event that celebrates local and international writers over 6 days. I'm a big fan of this local festival, so I decided to reimagine the 2018 poster. 

I chose to focus on three aspects of the festival: the location (Auckland, NZ), the 2018 theme ('Open Book') and lastly, how the event brings together people to explore ideas, share stories and experience brilliant conversations.

I combined illustration and photography to create visual interest and contrast the physical reality of the books at the festival and the potential conversations attendees might have. The Auckland Writers Festival is fun and jam packed, so I tried to convey some of that atmosphere in the poster.

Thanks Chip Kidd for sharing your tips on how to create an art poster!
