We were very excited to work with Nelson Festivals and the Nelson City Council again in producing the Summer In Nelson programme for this year. It gives us the chance to find new and creative ways to communicate what is on in Nelson between December and March, as well as express what makes Nelson so special in summer.
This year we drew (excuse the pun) from a handful of different inspirations, and created a series of unique illustrations. The Downing Design team had great fun thinking up all the nostalgic locations and activities Nelson has to offer, and then set pen to paper as we interpreted the emotion and excitement of each event.
The cover shows a person’s feet amidst a splash of water, with the iconic Rocks Road fence in the background – a classic Nelson summer pastime. The programme includes New Year’s Eve at the end of Trafalgar Street, the Lantern Celebration at the Centre of New Zealand and the Teddy Bears’ Picnic at Isel Park.
