Next Wave Festival 2016

A bi-annual contemporary and emerging arts festival held in Melbourne. The design collateral included a 48pp program catalogue, website, digital publication (Worm Hole), street posters, newsprint promotions, outdoor place-making and social media.

Major concepts outlined in the brief, included The Arrow of Time, Entropy, embracing complexity, and a measure of disorder. Leading the design process to be strongly influenced by diagrams which are often used to explain scientific theories. Taking these visual cues we created a series drawings which attempt to explain (with creative license) some of the subtle and nuanced aspects of the briefs greater themes and concepts. These individual drawings come together via varied and specific encounters to create one mass event.

Collaboration with Hayden Daniel.
