A Branding & Graphic Design Plan For Your Festival



Design Strategy

We begin with a carefully constructed branding plan that considers all the graphical needs of your event so that we can design the components strategically and apply them to the applications. This is the foundation for a cohesive presentation to your audience.


Superb Graphics

Our design is based on decades of experience with posters, prints and consumer products - we know what people want to buy. And we understand how to translate that aesthetic into effective marketing materials that brings the crowds to your gate!


Product Development

Dan Gilbert Art Group has designed and licensed hundreds of products in apparel, home decor, home furnishings, toys and games, and more. We work in practically all media and can produce merchandise that beautifully markets your event year-round.


Crate Label Revival

For agricultural events we offer original Fruit Crate Label poster designs, a decorative and popular genre that visitors love to collect. This motif is the perfect format to show off your theme and logo. Dan Gilbert is the leading contemporary crate label designer!


Superb Design Strategically Planned

Your event's logo, poster and marketing materials will influence the public's expectations. Will it be a well-run, quality experience? Your marketing materials are the first connection you make with your audience and its critical that you send the best message you can. Today's audiences are conditioned to expect professionally produced graphics. Our objective is to deliver that level of excellence consistently throughout your event - from your web and print ads to the fair signage and merchandise.
