Blues & BBQ T-Shirt Design Contest
Designers from around the world compete to create the official Blues Fest T-shirt image.
BLUES & BBQ FEST T-SHIRT DESIGN CONTEST
Naldo Adrian, a 28-year-old graphic designer in Jakarta, Indonesia, was the winner of this year’s contest to create the image for the official t-shirt of the Crescent City Blues & BBQ Festival.
As in years past, the festival partnered with Creative Allies to hold a t-shirt design contest. More than 60 images from designers around the world were submitted. The winner was picked by staff of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation – the annual vote to pick a winner has become a tradition among the office staff.
Upon learning that his design was picked as the winner, Naldo sent us this greeting via email:
“I love art and design very much, and music as well - like rock, jazz and blues. My favorite blues band is Gugun Blues Shelter from Indonesia. Maybe you can invite them to the festival someday.”
Sure thing, Naldo.
“By the way the festival will be held on October 12, right? That's my birthday. I guess this is my very special birthday present.”
How awesome is that?
Naldo also said:
“Wish I could go there, but I can't abandon my work here. Thank you for this great honor, and I hope the best for the show.”
Thank you, Naldo. We love your design.
Winning designs from overseas are becoming another tradition for the Blues & BBQ Festival. Last year’s winner was Marco Gambella, aka Ranboh, who lives in Padua, Italy.
