Project Overview

Vanfest music festival draws thousands of young music lovers to the country every summer. Developed to support and strengthen youth culture and community tourism, brand evolution progressed organically from the event’s original identity.

Summer is a big time for NSW music festivals. When you’re competing with FOMO, Field Day and Secret Garden, you need to make an impact as a festival of choice.

How do we promote a brand that people want to be part of?

Pulling iconic colours from the nineties, a soft, bright palette is impossible for passers-by to miss. Progression of the brand’s sunset motif brings eye-catching patterns to the fore, expelling major ‘pool party’ vibes as an attraction for young women – the event’s main demographic. The festival’s iconic eye has been grown into a fully formed character, with illustrations of adventurous Vanfest icons boasting a fun, flirty appeal.

Applications range from small to large scale, with consistent design rolled out across band posters, main stage design, side scrims, bars, recycling and campground signage, billboards, social media, motion graphics, Snapchat filters and website look and feel.

The 2017 Vanfest event reached 2,546,300 Facebook users, with 102,360 video views and 6,389 post shares – successfully achieving key objectives in securing ticket sales for its annual festival.

Thank you for everything along the Vanfest journey. You guys did such an amazing job, from start to finish. I’m incredibly proud of the branding. I look forward to potentially working together again in the future.
