Starting six weeks from today, West Seattle Summer Fest takes over The Junction for the three hottest days (regardless of the weather!) of summer – July 8, 9, 10. Today, the West Seattle Junction Association has gone public with the official 2011 West Seattle Summer Fest poster. For the design, they turned to one of West Seattle’s most artistically inclined entrepreneurs, Jeff Gilbert of the Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor) – who routinely designs grabby graphics for his own business’s online and offline promotions. In a news release, WSJA quotes Jeff as saying, “Being asked to design the poster for Summer Fest is the West Seattle equivalent of winning an Academy Award. I’ve been such a huge fan of the festival, every since I was a kid. More so now that I’m old enough to get in the beer garden! It’s an absolute honor to be asked to contribute to the West Seattle community.”
Also as part of the Summer Fest preps, this call for participation:
… we’re gathering performance ideas from the community. Calling all artists, dancers, and performers who’d like to showcase their talents in the heart of the festival. Performers will have a dedicated area (but not a stage) and a sound system. This a great opportunity for school groups, clubs, teams and specialized schools. Email email@example.com to express your interest in performing.
WSB is proud to be among the festival’s co-sponsors again this year! P.S. Trying to remember what last year’s poster looked like? We published it here.
