Paphos Soul Survivors
Logo and Flyer Design
It’s not everyday you get asked to design a logo for an impromptu music event – but that’s exactly what happened!
“A friend of mine and DJ asked me to design the logo and a simple flyer for a soul music event in Cyprus.”
The original music event had been cancelled 2 days before it was due to start so a group of DJs and event organisers decided to put on their own music week in the sun. A name for the event, logo and flyer design was needed to be done quickly so there wasn’t much time for creative brainstorming.
My friend had seen a logo he liked and asked if I could produce something similar. So all we needed was a name…
150 people (out of 300) and 8 Djs were still going to Cyprus so my girlfriend posted a picture on Facebook: Soul Survivors (shown above). This proved popular and as the event was in Paphos, the name chosen was Paphos Soul Survivors.
The idea for the flyer was to create a template that could be easily modified by my friend and post on social media. This would need to be done on the fly out in Cyprus as events were being arranged and details updated daily. I used Affinity Photo because it’s quick and easy to use.
For the backdrop image I sourced some nice shots of the beach, harbour and sunsets. I tried a variety of photos until I found a suitable sunset which I modified so the logo would stand out. My friend had suggested a sunset background so was happy with the design.
I enjoyed creating the logo and flyer design, which were well received and perfect for this event. Me and a group of friends went to Paphos Soul Survivors, partied hard and loved it!
