Alright, so before you go all crazy thinking I designed these fantastic little gems...let me tell you that I didn't. I have however been asked to design the 2010 equivalent at work. The Once Festival was started in Ann Arbor in the 1960's. Lots of innovative musicians and artists would come from all over, even internationally. 

Well, they are having a revival festival called Once. More.. It is going to be a pretty incredible event. I'm designing the program guide which is about 89 pages. Crazy right? So much is going into this festival to make it awesome. I'm pretty thrilled about it. That said, my boss is out of town for two weeks in Italy which means I'm lone woman at the office. On one hand it is awesome...I can listen to whatever music I want and it is super calm just by myself. On the other hand, I have lots too do. I take for granted the fact that my boss always answers the phone and responds to e-mails...all I have to do is design. I have been shocked at how much busier my days get when I'm in charge. Perspective is a funny thing. I pulled a 12 hour day at work in addition to seminary. Cree thinks that means I should take off early on Friday. I think that sounds like a grrreat idea. 

Anywho, for now just enjoy these awesome images. Each is a program from a different event back in the 60's. Don't you love how the grid is so small on the accordion folded program? I can't show the front because there might be a woman in her birthday suit....these people liked nudity. I still like how they structured everything, the grid, the fonts, the colors. I find it all very inspiring. I hope my interpretation can do it justice. I'm having a hard time finding something that says 1960 and 2010...but we are getting there. :)
