Autumn apple garden inspired poster series

Project: Music fes­ti­val posters series.
What: Poster design.
When: 2021.
Design: I. Matveev.


Well I decid­ed to make a series of posters. As far as I need­ed some­thing to start off, I walked through my autumn gar­den tak­ing some pic­tures. First, an apple. Which led me to a phrase acci­den­tal­ly risen: “Yablochny Spas” (Apple Feast of the Sav­iour, is an East­ern Slav­ic hol­i­day. The hol­i­day has a pre-Chris­t­ian ori­gin and is asso­ci­at­ed with har­vest­ing of ripe fruits, espe­cial­ly apples. In East Slav­ic folk­lore, it marks the begin­ning of autumn and means the trans­fig­u­ra­tion of nature. Also, it is the sec­ond in the cycle of August hol­i­days ded­i­cat­ed to the har­vest. It is believed that on this day nature turns from sum­mer to autumn, i.e. it is transformed.

Going fur­ther, I decid­ed to make posters most­ly using acid colours and strong con­trasts. Thus I thought them to be posters of a fic­tion­al elec­tron­ic music fes­ti­val, and as far as I use Soyuz Grotesk font, I though the fes­ti­val is tak­ing part in the USSR, if it hasn’t col­lapsed. So it’s also my reflec­tion on what the design could be in mod­ern USSR, if it remained and devel­oped into some mod­ern open country.
