Vidyalankar Institute of Technology is an engineering degree college based in Mumbai, India. It has been accredited by National assessment and accreditation with A+ grade in 2019. We were required to design the stage-backdrop for their annual festival VERVE. The director of the institute wanted us to celebrate artists and artistes in some manner - thereby encouraging the engineering students to also be open to creative pursuits. We conducted a workshop with the students to understand their perspective. We then shortlisted and illustrated 58 personalities from the field of Science, Performing Arts and Sports. Inspiring words spoken by them were used to motivate the viewer and also balance the white space as vertical graphic-elements. Since we were printing on an unsustainable material - flex boards - we decided to split the entire decor into vertical rectangular panels. Each of these panels would have a few illustrations of these personalities and a motivational quote. Once the festival is over - these panels are to be put up in the hall-way of the college as interior posters.
