Good Life Experience 2018 – Main Stage design

In 2018, I was commissioned to create the main stage design for The Good Life Experience – a festival in North East Wales founded by the wonderful Cerys Matthews MBE. The design needed to be beautiful, impactful, easy to transport/assemble, but also meet a limited budget. Working with set designer and community artist Olivia Altaras, I produced a design portraying woodland animals in the branches of two trees. The design was broken into sections that were laser cut on multiple sheets of ply board, which could be transported, reassembled on site and painted black, after which it was set up with additional props and lighting. The size of the design was approximately 17m wide x 3m high.
