Charlie worked as art director and graphic designer with top illustrator Lucille Clerc, who created the sea-monster and the hand-drawn identity.
Wonderful Beast, the Suffolk-based charity behind Storm of Stories knew they wanted something which would represent the family-friendly-yet-slightly-scary vibe of the festival.
After some initial ideas and brainstorming with Lucille she produced this extraordinary illustration — which takes its influences from Aldeburgh (the seaside setting of the festival). It plays on the themes of stories being doorways into other worlds, while the little girl with the frying pan is a character from The Nightingale — their headlining production.
Charlie went on to design posters, tri-fold leaflets, and a new landing page for the WB website which showcases the festival. He is currently working on the programme for The Nightingale, their headline production.
