One of my outside interests is the support offered to Blenheim’s fledgling orchestra, the Marlborough Civic Orchestra. For two reasons – I am a sometime violinist who hasn’t played seriously for over 30 years and thought it might be good to play again in an environment where I could hide amongst other, far more talented musicians. The other is that my wife, Linda, is the conductor and one of the organisers along with a group of other super committed and talented musicians and musical enthusiasts.
Of course having your spouse involved in community organisations usually entails being the go to guy for graphics and marketing material. That being said, the orchestra being a pro-bono client, means there’s a degree of creative licence given for which I am always grateful.
Here are presented a couple of posters and graphics created for the orchestra over the last 18 months or so for concert promotions and gift cards for visiting performers and conductors.
