Success for Tayburn

Mammoth's mentor agency, Tayburn, recently won Gold and Bronze awards in the poster and print design catagories at this year's Fresh Awards. The Gold award was received for the project pictured above; posters for the Classic Jazz Orchestra at the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival.

"A simple typographic observation means that the poster reads ‘Classic’ and ‘Jazz’ within a single word.
A typeface which Michael O’Shea had developed for a previous job was found to be perfectly suitable, not only because the letterforms complemented the dual messaging, but also because the typeface had been derived from early Blue Note jazz record covers." - Tayburn
