When Felix started re-branding Heaven Fest for 2012, I threw a Pinterest board together to show him things I like.
We are simplifying the look a bit. Think Mac. Cleaner. Pure color (not grayed over, nor muted, pul-eeze). But putting the Pinterest board together was just bringing various things that struck-my-fancy to one spot, my fancies (not Heaven Fest’s ,necessarily). When I think festival branding, these things all have a tiny piece of it in my collaged-head. You can see the whole board here:
SOME OF MY FAVS-
(CLICK ON IMAGES to go to source)
I spent years liking muted color (think antiques, think Starbucks-coffee-house colors). And while I still appreciate sort of the aged sophistication of those colors, I have increasingly been drawn to pure, bright color.
Blue and yellow apparently draws my eye, too.
I was a young girl during the birth of the Jesus-People Movement.
During 7th grade, I got to board a psychedelic-painted church bus and travel downtown to Christian Coffee Houses where the “One-way” chant became our cry. Songs reminded us there was only one-one God-one book “and that’s the Holy Bible” to get us to the promised land! There was a zealous passion of Jesus during that time. The media took notice.
My dad made me come out of my room to watch 3 televised days of Explo ’72 in Dallas. I was hooked after 5 minutes and it was the first time I realized I was part of a huge move of God in the earth. I wasn’t alone, just a little Christian girl in a small church in my small city. People everywhere loved Jesus. It was there I first heard/saw: Give me a J…give me an E…Give me an S…Give me another S….what’s it spell?….J E S U S….the crowds would yell, over and over.
Heaven Fest was being birthed in my heart in those days. I secretly want to lead a Jesus chant. Shhhhh….
Woodstock. Started it all.
For Heaven Fest 2013, I so wish I could use this poster.
Except it would be “One day, one stage, one purpose.” See how it is all coming together? :)
Oranges are a draw for me.
I am not sure why I wanted the Vertigo poster on my Festival Graphics Pinterest Board, but I think it is amazing design.
I found this recently and have dubbed it “Heaven Fest Hair.”
I hope some one really does this and I get to meet them.
