Junction Arts Festival is an annual multi-arts festival featuring interactive and ambitious contemporary art, music and performance that transforms the streets and hidden spaces of Launceston each year. Having an ongoing relationship with Junction since 2012, S.Group has been once again invited to develop all brand, digital and printed collateral, along with a bespoke ticketing platform for the 2016 Festival.
With the refresh of their brand, Junction also wanted to drop "Arts Festival" from their name and replace it with a "less niche" tagline to captivate a wider audience. We focused on;
Our goal was to create eye catching, memorable imagery that makes you say “wow” by using imagery with volume, life and detail that entices the viewer to keep looking in order to absorb the content.
To support the newly developed tagline "Make It Yours" we explored an artistic, handcrafted approach that’s relatable to creatives, families, children, adults and those who simply appreciate great design. This stand-alone position showcases the distinctive Junction personality by contrasting competitors and appealing to a broader target audience.

Use of hanging elements like “floating” clouds and string lights to create ambiance connecting to the Junction.
