Design for the annual music industry gathering in Manchester — In the City. This was its 4th year, so I thought I’d play around with an abstracted 4 motif, no hard to grasp concepts there.

Conceived and overseen by impresario and Factory Records boss Tony Wilson, In the City is where industry bods come to talk about topical music matters, and a lot of unsigned bands play in the evenings.

Tony Wilson turned up at Intro with a bottle of Boddingtons, as a gift. They were going to be sponsoring the event that year and supply it with beer, which always go down well. He said something profound, gave me the bottle of beer and left us to get on with the design.
