A sign that the annual Marsden Jazz Festival is almost upon us is printing off the Menus. Of all the Marsden jobs it's the one I most enjoy as I can give vent to whatever creativity I might have. Nobody cares too much about the menus as long as they list the food available at each distinct period over the weekend. They are not designed by graphic designers we use, there are no components that have to be used : how they look is entirely up to me. This year there are two common elements to each menu. First is the "marsden07" header which is designed to brighten up the posters and reflect the eclectic nature of the Festival. The second element is the images which have been chosen to represent both young and old people enjoying playing jazz. Here is just one example.
The Festival starts tomorrow so we are all watching the sky, hoping for good weather and hoping that everything goes as smoothly as possible.
