In-house project to produce part of the print items needed for the two competitions
  • CCC Music Festival
    Forms, posters, flyers, print ads, programme books, and various other things
  • Project year: 2009–2010
    In-house project at Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Toronto

    The music festival consists of both a local (national) piano competition and an international piano competition. All the initial design work (including all logotypes and the design of the first publication, the syllabus for the local piano competition) was outsourced. In-house staff was not involved until a later stage.

    As the design of all printed materials were constrained by the initial design work, my involvement was to adapt this initial design to create all kinds of additional print material, including posters, flyers, print ads, competition syllabus brochures, programme books, a stand-up banner, registration forms, and all kinds of forms for internal use.

    Piano graphic, event logotypes, and the basic layout of the covers: Oliver Yang
  • A typical spread of the programme book for the local piano competition.
    (The house ad on the left page was adapted from an earlier work that I also did.)
  • While the cover of the gala concert was still largely constrained by the original design of the syllabus’ cover, script type was used for everything related to the concert.
  • The section headings inside the gala concert programme book mirrors the cover’s use of script type.
    (To increase consistency, the list of winners were also preprocessed with some Perl programming before placing into InDesign.)
  • Bilingual poster used for the province of Quebec, based on an English-only ad created earlier for the directory of piano competitions published by the Alink-Argerich Foundation
