Data encapsulates our everyday lives, affecting us in both positive and negative ways. This project makes use of your data whilst at The Edinburgh Fringe and creates a personalised poster as a souvenir of your experience.
I wanted to create a personalised souvenir that encompasses the Fringe’s lively nature and traditional, iconic posters. Through the use of an app, users document their festival experience with shows and dates. After they have finished their time at the Fringe, a unique poster is created. Each shape in the design correlates with a show the user has been to, with a large organic shape representing the location of venues throughout the city. The app allows users to customise their poster before ordering, with shapes and colours being adaptable.
Flyers and posters are such an iconic element of the Fringe, however they create tonnes of waste each year. I have decided to create my posters out of recycled flyers and posters from the previous year to help reduce the festival’s overall wastage. This project contributes towards The Fringe Society’s goals of a more eco- friendly fringe whilst providing attendees with a personalised souvenir that they can collect year after year.
