Design+Music Festival 2019 – Event Recap

AIGA Jacksonville hosted the Design+Music Festival on Saturday, October 5 at the CORK Arts District in Riverside. Hundreds gathered in the gallery to marvel at the posters, enjoy live music by Indy, Modern Violence, Folk is People, Glazed, and Hurricane Party.

Music, food, and beverages were on deck in the corkyard.

Our premiere event displayed artwork from creatives in Jacksonville, Denver, Portland, and beyond. The walls of CORK were covered in 24×48 posters printed by our generous print sponsor, PrintJax. The large-format posters were diverse in music genres and based on favorite summer songs, albums, soundtracks, and festivals. Bold type, hand-lettering, illustrations, photography, and screen printing showcased the wide range of skillsets from the creative community.

Posters lined the walls of CORK from the floor to the ceiling

As a layered component to the poster show, we introduced a live music element for a second year. Indy kicked off the festival with her eclectic R&B/Soul melodies.


Energetic performances by Modern Violence, Folk is People, Glazed, and Hurricane Party continued throughout the night.
