VIT Verve Stage Backdrop

We were required to design stage backdrops for Vidyalankar Institute of Technology, Mumbai's Festival - VERVE 2020. The Institute director envisioned the celebration of accomplished individuals in the fields of Science, Performing Arts and Sports, to inspire the students.

We shortlisted and illustrated 58 personalities were illustrated and used some inspiring words spoken by them to double as graphic-elements with the illustrations. Keeping in mind the waste that is usually generated from setting up large public events, we wanted to make sure our proposed materials are not wasteful and have a longer shelf-life. We split the backdrop of the stage into smaller portable panels. Post the festival, the panels are used as 'wall panels' to be hung in the interior walls of the institute.

The students were also engaged in a contest to recognize the personalities in the artworks. The AMVDS team thoroughly enjoyed the process and it has been one our personal favourite projects in the year.
