Leaflet, flyer and poster design for UPrising, a one-day festival event.

Art31 is a youth arts initiative for 16 – 24 year olds, aiming to create more artistic events and opportunities for young people in Kent. Art31 was conceived by The Gulbenkian, a cinema, theatre and arts space based at the University of Kent.

UPrising was a one-day festival event, created by ART31’s Youth Board, tackling the biggest challenges young people are currently facing, including mental health, wellbeing, employment and education. Joined by TV presenter Billie JD Porter, Art31 wanted to invite young people, creative professionals and artists to challenge ideas and ignite a change in the arts, through panel discussions, Q&As and workshops.

They approached me to create some eye-catching promotion material which included leaflets, flyers, posters and banners for the event. With a strong identity already established, the promotional material needed to dovetail seamlessly into this aesthetic.
