BEHIND THE 2019 POSTER
2019 Ness Creek Festival Visual Artist
Sandie Irvine, a Saskatchewan multi-media artist, has been contributing to the beauty of Ness Creek Music Festival since 1999; with the funky curves of her iconic clothing line FlutterbyButterfly, highlighting stellar talent as Co-Ordinator of the Artisan Market, doodling poster-designs while lazing in the downtown sunshine, or just simply beaming Nessiness essence from that pretty face. "There’s no place like this magical forest-home; where I've bet my shirt on the aurora borealis, hopped-for-scotch, lost my way (and then found it again) in the phosphorescent moss, and threaded beads of happy smiles for miles. Big hearts and happy-ness, fine folk!
Behind The Process
Each year, following the festival, we hold a contest where we call for artwork submissions and select a winner. We then send the winning artwork over to our amazing graphic design team at Odelay! in Saskatoon and they develop our festival creative from the original artwork. We use this festival creative to brand our posters, t-shirts, website background, and many other elements of what you see from Ness for the rest of the year.
If you'd like to be notified about our next artwork submission contest, please sign up for our email newsletter and we'll send out an announcement post-festival.
