Brighton Fringe is an open-access arts festival that runs for four weeks over May - June in Brighton. It’s the biggest arts festival in England, and one of the largest Fringe festivals in the world. We offer a thrilling and vibrant selection of theatre, cabaret, comedy, music, dance, visual arts and spoken word, which promises something for everyone. We set out to stimulate, educate and entertain a diverse cross-section of people through a broad range of art forms.
Brighton Fringe is a festival made up of curious events made by curious people. Only the most inquisitive will uncover the wonders that lie within our programme - whether that’s secret comedy clubs, surprise guest slots from world renowned drag artists, intimate theatre in a caravan or midnight circuses. It is a place where you don’t have to conform, where you can keep an open mind. Enjoy a #CuriouslyFringe experience at Brighton Fringe.
The Brighton Fringe main graphic will provide the core branding for the 2022 marketing campaign, and will be translated across all marketing materials including print and outdoor advertising, social media, digital, app and email marketing.
As we take big steps away from our usual print brochure-led branding and more into the digital world, it’s important that the designer, illustrator or animator that we work with has a strong understanding of producing work for digital platforms.
Please note: Brighton Fringe is an international arts festival and designs and motifs that rely on recognition of Brighton landmarks such as Brighton Palace Pier and the Royal Pavilion are not suitable for this brief. Please also think creatively, submissions that go beyond literal interpretations of the brief are welcomed.
