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.
SCOPE OF WORK: BRAND IDENTITY, BROCHURES & PROGRAMME, MERCHANDISE DESIGN, ILLUSTRATION, PRINT MANAGEMENT
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Leeuwin Concert is a magical event and the personality and great talent of Michael Crawford made the stars shine brighter.
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".
We created an informal combination of wine and music motifs for an artist with such a wonderful and seemingly effortless sound.
For the 20th Leeuwin concert we took inspiration form Renaissance and Baroque design to create this stately concert identity from grape, vine leaf and gumnut motifs.
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.
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.
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.
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.
For the 25th Concert we celebrated this amazing combination of wonderful music, excellent wine and good company with bold shapes and rich summer colours.
Like a Summer breeze, the music lifts and turns the vine leaves into a dynamic living form.
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.
With an almost spirographic rendering inspired by the treble clef, we created a bold, contemporary look for the 2012 concert.
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?
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.
For Bryn Terfel's return to the Leeuwin stage we created this richly coloured, regal emblem. Our client thought it one of the best yet.
