Somerset House Summer Series 2019

Freelance – 2019

The brief: to create the campaign for Somerset House Summer Series, the music festival that takes place every summer in Somerset House iconic 18th-century courtyard. This year’s line-up featured Gossip, Jacob Banks and Nao.
The objectives were to make the Summer Series stand out from competing festivals, to position the event as relevant, cool and vibrant and to reference the courtyard, reinforcing the juxtaposition of the contemporary line-up against the historic setting.

I played with scale, geometric shapes and a primary colour palette to suggest the sound world created by the artists. The shapes break out of the frame, illustrating the epic, heart-pounding experience.
