Square Roots Festival

Square Roots Festival

Since 2011, I’ve been creating all branded materials for Square Roots, the summer street festival co-produced by Old Town School of Folk Music and the Lincoln Square Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce. Designs for the Festival include posters, postcards, on-site signage, vinyl banners, double bifold programs with lineups, schedules, menus, and ad space, cups, wristbands, stickers, tickets, souvenir and volunteer t-shirts, and a full range of social media and digital graphics to be distributed before, during, and after the event. The scope of my responsibilities include art direction, design, and custom illustration, as well as print production, vendor management, and project management. This festival welcomes 30,000 unique visitors to the Lincoln Square neighborhood each year for three days of live music, craft beer, local food and vendors, and family-friendly fun. Visit squareroots.org for more info.
