The poster for this event has really captured the spirit for me. Melbourne based The Hungry Workshop are masters of typography and illustration and yet again they have excelled. The design is so clever in its simplicity to define what the whole event is about. I think it is best summed up in their own words…

The bright, bold, geometric design joins two simple symbols of the found and the kept. Feathers are found, sought after and collected. They represent personality, not only defining a species of bird but also symbolising a free spirit. It’s a natural and organic element which contrasts the key. Keys are carefully crafted and used to keep, or unlock and set free. They represent an unseen value, a treasure or a secret. Both represent individuality and we think together, they sum up The Finders Keepers experience quite well.” – The Hungry Workshop
