The poster for Paléo festival 2017 was revealed today the 30th November. The poster was designed by two young students, Catia Ferreira Barreiras and Nausicaa Planche who are in the second year of a visual communications degree at the Geneva School of Art and Design (HEAD – Genève). The design has already been incorporated into the Paléo website and will be seen in many forms next year on T-shirts, on bags, on screens on the programme and in merchandising.
Inspired by the lights of Paléo
The students explain where the inspiration for their design came from
“The idea of representing the Festival’s lighting in graphic form came to us quite spontaneously. By plunging into memories of our own experiences of the Festival, we realised that we had both been struck by the colours, the forms and the contrasts that emanated from the Festival’s stages, both by day and by night. We wanted to illustrate what for us represented the soul of Paléo: the concerts, the artists and the public. The lighting, spots, beams and projectors reflecting off the audience and playing on the artists inspired this visual universe, made of geometrical forms and flashy colours.”
The 42nd edition of Paléo Festival Nyon will take place from 18th to 23rd July 2017 .The line-up will be revealed on Tuesday 28th March and tickets will go on sale at midday on Wednesday 5th April 2017.
