︎︎︎ The Young Vic - The Lowdown Exchange

The Young Vic Theatre has been one of London’s leading theatres for more than fifty years. It was founded in 1970 as a space for world-premiere productions as well as unexpected takes on classic plays that speak to our present.

The Lowdown Exchange is a three-day festival presented by the Young Vic for young people interested in the creative industry.
From Wed 19 to Fri 21 Apr, the Young Associates will be hosting a range of workshops and events focused on developing skills, finding new career paths and meeting other young creatives.

The festival will culminate in a celebration on Friday night where everyone is welcome to connect with like-minded individuals. Whether you're a writer, designer, musician, or artist, The Lowdown Exchange offers a unique opportunity to network with industry professionals, learn from experienced creatives and develop your skills.

The Young Vic got in touch with me asking to art direct and design a visual identity for the festival.

The designs are also very influenced by the use of textures and shading, which give the design more depth as well as a more handmade feeling. The final identity features a dark blue background and a pattern of editable shapes,
