GCR - Vintage Vehicle Summer Festival Branding
Designed for the Great Central Railway Vintage Vehicle Summer Festival the event takes The Steam Miniatures and Commercial events (see previous posts GCR Commercial event and Steam Miniatures ) and combines them into one big festival to which all vintage vehicles are invited and welcome to attend.
The design itself borrows from the well known vintage rail posters on display at the heritage railways stations and features a Commercial Truck, Traction Engine and Vintage Bus taken from the posters for events that this event replaces.
The poster also features a Steam Engine "Bridging The Gap" which is a nod to the railways plans to re-unite the two halves of the "Old Great Central Railway",
The planes reference the Hurricane, Spitfire and Dakota flypast that will also be part of the festival.
The design is also adapted for use in the standard "Tall Flyer" format for use in tourist info POS and situations where a full sized poster is not an option due to lack of space etc.
