21 years of Leeuwin Concerts

We have been working with Leeuwin Estate since 1994, when we were first commissioned to design an Identity for the 1995 Leeuwin Concert to be used on tickets, passes and T-shirts.

Designing for each concert is a thoroughly enjoyable process where we get to reflect the artist and the Leeuwin Concert's personality.

The Leeuwin Concert 1995 George Benson

An event poster design in our folio caught the eye of our friends at Leeuwin Estate and so we began our first design for the concert in the same style.

The Leeuwin Concert 1996 Kiri Te Kanawa

This hand-panted cornucopia, a symbol of abundance, was ideal for a concert with the exceptional Kiri Te Kanawa and West Australian Symphony Orchestra in the beautiful Leeuwin setting.

The Leeuwin Concert 1997 Shirley Bassey

Unfortunately we are still searching for these and have only managed to find one minor pass and some rough sketches.
If anyone out there has a ticket or pass from this concert we'd love to see a photo or scan.

The Leeuwin Concert 1998 Julio Iglesias

As Julio is Spanish, we looked to another Spanish artist, Picasso for inspiration to create an image that conveyed the atmosphere of the concert experience on a warm summer night.

The Leeuwin Concert 1999 Bryn Terfel & Yvonne Kenny

Inspired by architectural ornament this image portrays the classical duets of the artists and the richness of their voices. We're not sure what they felt about this illustration.

Described as "one of the greatest songstresses of our time" we wanted to express Roberta Flack's star quality at the Leeuwin Concert.

This bold and striking combination of stars, bottle and vines was a fitting design for our own Australian icon, "The Voice".

The Leeuwin Concert 2005 Sting

A favourite of ours, this dynamic graphic was created from large ink and brush drawings of leaves, instruments and bottles, faces, drips and splatters.
Leeuwin and Sting also put on a 3rd concert to raise funds for the victims of the tragic Boxing Day Tsunami.

The Leeuwin Concert 2006 Amici forever

Leeuwin is the dutch word for lion, and this more classical concert was a perfect opportunity to create an identity with two proud and regal lions sounding the fanfare to announce the concert.

The Leeuwin Concert 2007 Simply Red

inspired by the fabric designs of Florence Broadhurst in the 70's we produced a simple two colour motif of the gumtree blossom creating an identity with the energy of the band from the flora of the venue.

The Leeuwin Concert 2008 Yvonne Kenny, David Hobson and WASO

At many Leeuwin concerts, Dragonflies flit low over our heads as we picnic in the twilight. These beautiful creatures with their shimmering wings inspired this years identity.

The Leeuwin Concert 2011 Roxy Music

An exploding shooting star was a great way to portray the high energy pop of a Roxy music show with the beautiful outdoor setting of Leeuwin Estate.

In 2011 we developed a different design for the T-shirt, and we were so happy with the result we created a poster as well.

The Leeuwin Concert 2013 Carol King

This year we wanted to get back to a more natural representation of the concert. This view was painted in black ink on paper and just as I finished, a willy wagtail flew into the studio and dropped it's own personal comment on the painting! Was this a tweet?

2013 Leeuwin concert identity

The Leeuwin Concert 2014 Diana Krall The 30th Leeuwin Concert

For the 30th Leeuwin Concert we developed a formal identity taking inspiration from the magnificent trees behind the main concert shell and the way the lights play on them during the show.
