Bristol Design Festival Poster

Here is a sneak peak at the official poster for this year's Bristol Design Festival. Designed by the magnificent local designer Marc Bessant. This edition of 100, two colour screen prints will be signed and numbered and available throughout the festival. Who better to tell us about the thinking and doing behind the design of this piece than Marc himself "Originally created from a number of wood block prints and intended to be hung either landscape or portrait, its a pun on Bristol's most famous creator Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the man with the tall hat and short cigar responsible for umpteen modern marvels in-and-around the South West of this fair Isle..."
