Festival of Flowers event banner, Christchurch, 2014
As I mentioned in last week’s post, we’ve finally decided on a name for our duo. We’re now performing as Pavlova Paradise (more of a ‘dessert island’ than a ‘desert island’). I’m chief graphic designer, art director and publicist… I also sing and play egg ― oh and I’m now learning to play a Novation Bass Station II (a very cool synth). James is the rest of the band: vocals, guitars, drums, backing tracks, sound engineer and roadie. We both write songs and we LOVE harmonies. Most of our songs are covers but we do throw in an original from time to time.
Creating our logo was not the easiest project I’ve ever worked on (I place the blame entirely on the clients) but I got there in the end. The circle design is a stylised compass that also looks a bit like a pavlova (at least we think it does). The banner above was created for an event that’s happening on Thursday afternoon in Christchurch (yes, that’s right, it’s shameless self-promo time).
But I have no desire to turn my art cave into a music blog or to spam you with posters advertising our gigs (I really don’t), so if you’re interested, please pop over and have a look… I’ll only post about it here when it’s relevant to art or design.
