Congratulations to the 2020 Fairfax Festival Poster Design Winner

Katie OSheaThis is Katie’s first Fairfax Festival poster design submission and she drew on her personal experience of attending the Festival. “I wanted to capture the mood and feelings of celebration from being at the Festival. I spent some time in the Redwood Grove and worked with the colors and silhouettes, aiming for a timeless look.”  “Designing for local non-profits has always been a priority so winning the design challenge for this year’s Fairfax Festival poster contest was especially rewarding.”
