Seattle Bon Odori


Seattle Betsuin

Since 2014, I’ve created the poster and t-shirt designs for the Bon Odori Festival held annually in Seattle, WA. With traditional Japanese motifs rendered in bold, festive colors, the event branding also incorporates the zodiac sign for that respective year. Initial ideas are sketched out and reviewed by the client before we proceed to digital illustration.
