Courtyard Concerts was an initiative created by a group of talented musicians during the pandemic, where they would travel around the city and host concerts in public courtyards, terraces or gardens, as an alternative way of gathering during the Covid pandemic. The chosen typography as well as the lay-out of the poster are inspired by traditional concert posters, which you can find anywhere in the city. Despite its traditional layout, by using a bold pattern and a vibrant colour, the aim was to grab the attention of passers-by. The oval’s uneven shape symbolises the idea of people getting together in an unconventional way such as a courtyard. The colour orange was chosen for being the dominant colour in the characteristic brick walls around the city of Amsterdam.
