Darbar, a non-profit organisation for South Asian music, approached me to design their 2008 festival brochure. Below are a few sample pages from the printed publication.
The brochure is A5 in size, saddle-stitched, and runs over 36 pages. Two main typefaces are used throughout – Clarendon (for headings) and Gotham (for body text). The best example of both together is shown on the front cover (the very first photo).
The aim of the piece is to promote Darbar’s third music festival, based in England. More than 35 artists from Britain and overseas come together to represent some 20 traditions in South Asian music.
For an insight into the music played, and the fantastic talent who participate, watch this 10 minute video on YouTube.

A special thanks to Sandeep Virdee, Darbar’s Artistic Director, for choosing to work with me on this project. We’re currently creating a 12 x 12 inch art book, which will be the first of its kind for the South Asian music sector. The photography is stunning, and I will feature it here once designed and printed.
Are you a South Asian music fan? What are your thoughts on the brochure design? Comments are very welcome.
