West Seattle Summer Fest: This year’s poster goes public

WSB is proud to again be among the co-sponsors of the peninsula’s biggest event of the year, West Seattle Summer Fest, coming up July 9, 10, 11 in The Junction – and we just got this copy of the newly released poster art you’ll be seeing soon all over West Seattle, as the summer’s biggest festival gets closer. (See the full-size PDF version here.) You’re probably wondering who’s on the slate of “Hot Local Bands” – the full slate is still being finalized, and you’ll see it as soon as it’s ready, but a few acts have independently announced they’re on the list (here’s a Facebook invite just tweeted by Massy Ferguson and one from Cars tribute band All Mixed Up – but don’t mark your calendar just yet, nothing’s final till it comes from the West Seattle Junction Association). Lots of newness ahead this year – features like the GreenLife sustainability/gardening expo, and also Junction Plaza Park, under construction now, to be dedicated June 29th, in plenty of time for Summer Fest.

    Bold poster design: hot pink, acid-yellow and neon-orange tilted angles! All it needs is Jim-Hendrix-style lettering, and we have a 1967 Summer of Love color scheme — but the utilitarian fonts say 21st century.

    The waving heavy-metalesque horned fingers –appealing to youth, I guess — surprising choice of image for something as family-friendly and innocuous as WS Summerfest. (Where’s the baby slings, fanny packs, leashed puppies, and ice cream cones?)

    We are so looking forward to this annual event! Hope they bring back the scrabbler ride for the kids.

    Sweet poster… any word on who designed it?

    Can’t wait until more bands are listed, as that’s by far our favorite part. Don’t get me wrong, I love checking out the local craft vendors… but I skip over the typical “fair food” and “new window” booths that are seemingly standard at all street fairs.

    Cant wait… I hope the book some West Seattle based bands.

    The poster was designed by Riverbed Design. We are enjoying the feedback.

Sorry, comment time is over.
