For my seventh year designing a poster, website and graphic identity for a local gardening, food, art and music festival, I designed a Scandinavian-inspired mandala of garden tools, food, music notes, art supplies and more. For the round version of the design, I was inspired by the many elements and perspectives that make community events possible: farmers and chefs preparing local food, gardeners sharing their knowledge and plants, community groups getting the word out about their programs, and fellow artists selling their work. An original cool colorway was updated with warm greens and reds to better reflect the long July days and warm (for Alaska at least) temperatures.
The 2021 Palmer Garden & Art Faire will take place on July 10 in downtown Palmer, Alaska. Find out more at palmergardenandart.org.
