Every year our festival posters have reflected outstanding artistry and have been a favorite throughout the history of the festival. They have also provided artists a unique opportunity to let their work be seen by thousands of visitors attending the Valley of the Moon Vintage Festival. For our poster design contest, the committee looks for a design that displays the colorful history, heritage or scenic environment of the Valley of the Moon.
We are happy to announce this year’s poster contest winner – John Austin. Passionate about bringing ideas to life, he has successfully worked on projects ranging from logo design, animation, storyboarding and after effects for film, and is comfortable in both hand-drawn and digital formats.
John was encouraged by friends familiar with the festival to enter into the Poster Contest and has created an art nouveau inspired work with rich colors of purple that connect the festival’s historic tie to the annual grape harvest.
