Song of the Year

 

it was an honour just to be nominated to work on this project

 

Following on from my work on WAMFest 2016 West Australian Music also recruited me to create the artwork for their upcoming Song of the Year Awards held at the WA Maritime Museum in Fremantle on 17 May 2017. This project included some social media graphics and animations as well as two posters; one for the callout for entries and the other advertising the awards party. From WAM's website: "Song Of The Year is an annual competition, promoting the talented, original songwriting of West Australian residents and embracing contemporary music of all genres, in addition to offering school-age, indigenous and regional categories."

 
 
 
 

Through my designs I wanted to draw attention to the open nature of the competition in terms of genre, as well as express the myriad of musical elements that can come together and form a great song, from the writing to the vocals, instrumentation and production. For the second Awards Party poster you could say it was a bit of a "remix" in terms of design in order to differentiate the two, but keep the core idea intact.
