A couple of months ago I was commissioned to create the visual identity of the Nordic Music Therapy Congress that will take place in Stockholm 2018. The client wanted something colorful that brought together the two aspects of music therapy- the scientific and calculating with the emotional and soulful and the logo mark needed to feel Nordic as the congress is a collaboration between the Nordic countries.
Mood board, by Lisa
After getting an understanding of what the client wanted, I put together a mood board of everything I connected the words Nordic, simple, shape, soul, light, constrained and music. Looking at that, I quite quickly decided on the colors blue with the contrast of pink as it reminded me of the mountains and a misty sunrise by the sea.
I entered a competition about a month ago for Secret 7 where you have to design sleeves for a song. Just found out I’m not in the final 700 (out of 7000, yikes!) so I thought I’d share what I did here as I like what I came up with.
I decided to work some more with the “directly translated sentences” from this post and made the drawings into posters! I found this quite fun and I’m thinking about slowly adding to this project and maybe make it in to a zine or printing them using silkscreen. Just need some more nonsense sentences and I’ll be good to go!
No day is without some sort of irritation at something. It may be small and lasts for the briefest second but there is always something to be annoyed about for sure. After having a particular bad day a couple of weeks ago, I decided to create a blog about those little things like a collection of sorts where I illustrate the everyday life struggles. I’m thinking about making this a little side project that I can come back to whenever I feel the need and add illustrations little by little.
