From brief to printed leaflet, let us take you on a journey of the Wilderness map commission
How it all began
Our Journey to the Wilderness Festival began earlier this year. The first step was this year's Bridgeman Studio Award, where together with Wilderness Festival and Creative Review we launched a competition calling artists from around the world to enter their work on the theme of The Great Outdoors. The Grand Prize was a commission project to design the map that would be handed out to the 30,000 festival-goers at this year's Wilderness Festival. The winner was Dutch artist Nik Van Es.
The judging took place on the afternoon of 16 June and part of the criteria was that the winner Nik had just over a month to get his design completed in time to be printed as a map within a leaflet for the festival in August.
Paul Mulvey, Senior Designer at Wilderness Festival, on picking the winner
“It wasn’t easy picking a winner from this years highly talented entries. Nik's work jumped out and said, “I will do something original.” It had a wilderness of its own and story telling illustrative style, perfect for a festival where fantasy forms part of the narrative and the experience. We are all very excited about this artist and it was a real honour awarding him the commission."
With you every step of the design process
The initial brief was put together after consulting the artist's portfolio with the team at Wilderness to get an idea of the colours, styles and fantastical elements they wanted for the map. It was also imperative to get a layout of the Wilderness site for the artist to work from. Preparatory sketches were intially created and once approved, Nik got to work with his design, meeting the deadline ahead of the festival in August.
