Between 2010 and 2013 I designed a range of concert poster for the Delft baroque chamber music society ‘choir’.
The first concert that was big enough to need a ‘real’ poster. At the time, I wrote a blog post about the design of this poster, describing the search for a visual and the choices I made for the information design. You can read it here.
A slightly smaller project without a real crowd pleaser in the program. However, people do tend to know Mozart. And the next project we did was again a bigger one with the ultimate crowd pleaser: Mozart Requiem.
After designing the poster for the Matthew Passion, I wrote a blog post about this specific design, the use of the Velasquez painting as a starting point and the considerations for logo placements. You can read about it here.
Two smaller projects followed. The Beethoven poster was more an exercise in typography and rhythm than anything else really. The Oxford concert was more focussed around a theme that could be visualised. It was only flyers and digital material for this project.
The last poster I created for a choir concert was Bach’s Hohe Messe. A baroque masterpiece of unprecedented virtuosity.
