I was asked to create two different t-shirt designs for BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, a free summer-long concert series that happens every year in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, NYC. The challenge was to create designs that looked unique and displayed the spirit of the festival.

Design #1 is completely based on geometric patterns, loosely portraying Prospect Park Bandshell, showing all the energy that emanates from it when the festival’s on. An exclamation point (a festival trademark) is revealed among it, pointing to the center of the stage.

Design #2’s hand-drawings magically represent the uncontainable energy of the festival. It feels alive, just like festival goers do when Celebrate Brooklyn!’s on. The illustration style also alludes to the diversity of the curation, of the audience and of Brooklyn itself.
