About Cosmic Unity Music Festival is a 3 day world music festival that is held in Red Rocks Park Colorado that features artists from different music genres and countries.
Concept The core design concept of this festival is based on 3 major aspects which is Mother Nature, the universe and of cause world music. I am sure u are puzzled on how I relate all those together to create this music festival. I came up with these 3 aspects while I was brainstorming for ideas, imagining myself sitting with scores of people in a world music festival. While I was doing that, questions starts to pop up such as what do I want to see, hear and experience there? The answer for me was simple - I would want to be in a venue which is unique and beautiful both its scenery and surrounding which is close knitted with nature, why nature you ask? because world music and nature goes together naturally, itís like when you enjoy world music not only will you enjoy its music but you enjoy it with the surrounding that you are in such as the sounds and scenery of the venue itself which is why I choose the Red Rocks Park in Colorado. During the night in Red Rocks, I do realize that the sky which happens to include the stars and the broad universe up above could relate to the wide variety genre of artists that will be playing in the event itself.
Name Based on all that I came up with 2 words which I think itís both unique and creative for the festival which is Cosmic Unity, Cosmic which represent everything in the nature of the universe itself which can be the sky, Mother Nature, the sounds, music itself and of cause us humans. The word Unity unites and connects all those aspects above into one single event which the Cosmic Unity World Music Festival. I did have other ideas for the name for the festival such as Red Rocks Music festival or simply just Summer World Music Festival. I just felt that if Iíd come up with a name which is something more unique and surreal it will draw both curiosity and interest in the general public mostly the ones who love to listen to World Music.
Elements As for the elements in the design, I did utilize a lot of with geometry shapes that relates to the 3 aspects of the concept. All of the elements used in the identity has itís own meaning. One such example is the red triangle that is seen in the poster. It represents the venue - Red Rocks Park. The distressed texture on the poster and on the triangle creates a organic look that compliments Red Rocks itself.
Colors As for the colors i used natural colors of green which symbolizes nature and a unique dark shade of blue which symbolizes night and the universe. less
