BRIGHTON FESTIVAL 2012
In 2012 Vanessa Redgrave was invited to guest-direct Brighton Festival. There were several themes we needed to tie into the creative, from Greek mythology and ‘memory’ through to theatrical heritage and Brighton itself. Inspiration came from a number of places – a photograph of Vanessa Redgrave by Victor Skrebneski, Botticelli’s ‘The Birth of Venus’, 1960s psychedelia, vintage movie posters and the beautiful ‘fin de siècle’ aesthetic. Our image took pride of place on the Brighton Festival programme and was rolled out across posters, newspaper ads and street signage in the run up to the Festival.
