A predominantly blue and yellow design reflects this year’s theme ‘the factory floor’, as Fleet Collective designer Lyall Bruce wanted to use a colour palette that was representative of this environment. Picking up on the yellows, reds and blues of industrial machinery, signage and workwear.

Having designed the inaugural identity, Lyall explored how to evolve this, saying “This approach led to an interesting experiment in typography, looking at how we could build a logo mark that represented this year’s festival using the fewest shapes possible and still remain legible.”
