Sound Out
Dig With It x Belfast City Council

At the start of 2023 I was involved in an exciting project with Belfast City Council and Tourism Ireland. Sound Out was an event in Boston and New York, showcasing Northern Irish talent. I was commissioned to design the branding for it. I created a logo, event posters, a publication and animations to bring the event to life.

I consulted closely with Hannah Peel, who was organising the event, as well as BCC and Tourism Ireland. I was very influenced by Blue Note record covers that use very simple geometric shapes but have a lot of movement and energy to them. The colours reflect the industrial colours of Belfast including the Harland and Wolff cranes and the funnels of the Titanic. The logo also alludes to the BCC logo and the shape of the Belfast Lough.
