For this design we wanted to portray the composers environment, we borrowed the appearance of colonial art carved on wood paneling.
Following the surroundings approach, we tried to imagine what Bach would see when looking up to the skies for inspiration—it would have most likely been a baroque ceiling.
For this series we simply found works of art relating to the subjet matter of the main sung pieces that were contemporary with their composers.
This concert‘s long title provided us with challenge, suddenly the amount of letters felt like a crowd—a choir... we drew an environment around them.
This is one of our favorite designs for GVCS. We tapped into childhood memories of putting a christmas tree together and played with the typography to create a visual metaphor for a musical round or perpetual cannon.
The idea for this design came from simply googling American Sampler, the image results showed old-time cross-stitching samples with patriotic themes. We adapted this visual language to fit GVCS.
Our first design for a GVCS concert. No one beats Rembrandt‘s use of lines for dramatic impact. We emulated his technique, redrew some of his angels, and arranged them to indicate a verbal exchange—an Antiphony.
Greenwich Village Chamber Singers
¿What is classical appeal?
The Greenwich Village Chamber Singers is a mixed chorus of approximately 40 voices, based in Greenwich Village. It attracts members from all over the greater New York metropolitan area, and is about to commence its 39th season performing secular and sacred choral music of all periods.
Since 2010 we have been helping them with art direction for their promotional materials and concert posters.
