Retfest 2021

A poster and schedule branding project for a local comedy festival.
After the success of Retfest 2019 (and the festival taking a break because of the pandemic), Mike from Barking Mad Promotions approached me to work on the branding and posters for Retfest 2021.
 
Retfest is a local comedy festival, showcasing local and up-and-coming talent. In 2019, the festival was a one day event, with other smaller comedy nights taking place throughout the year.
 
Mike asked me to mockup a series of different poster designs. I’d already done the Man About Town podcast artwork. So in line with his current Barking Mad Promotions branding and the podcast artwork, I had a base to work from to begin the poster designs.

Once Mike had picked his favourite design, these were distributed around the town and on social media, to drum up interest for the event.
 
After the date was confirmed with the venues, Mike contacted his roster of comedians to put together a schedule over the weekend-long festival.
 
Using the design that Mike preferred, he gave me the details of the venues, times and acts.
 
Trying to fit all of the data into a poster proved to be quite tricky, so I took inspiration from music festivals to present the information.
 
Once the schedule had a few rounds of amends, the timetable poster was finalised, and printed to be posted around the town and venues that were involved.
 
The comedy festival was a huge success, and plans are underway for Retfest 2022!
