Gathered: a gallery of Hardley Strictly Bluegrass six posters (2011 – 2016), compete with behind-the-scenes production animations

This gallery contains 3 new ‘how it was done’ animations. It was created to support a promotional email  marking the recent collaboration between myself and Olivia Hellman (HSB2016 poster). Finally all the last years’ HSB poster work I worked on is one place, for easy viewing.

The email was titled ‘Hardly Strictly …Donkeys!’

Olivia Hellman and Philip Chudy worked on the annual, exclusive, limited edition poster for Hardly Strictly Bluegrass since 2011, but this year was different.

From the start of the festival in 2001, Claude Shade (senior art director and photographer at Goodby Silverstein and Partners, SF) was the creative force behind this much vaunted series. Claude’s passing in 2015 left a long shadow.

Olivia created the 2016 poster to double as a tribute to Claude, working with fellow photo-artist Philip Chudy and a team, who were all intimate with the unique HSB festival ethos
