We loved working with the Manly Art Gallery and Museum on their 2012 July – December exhibition calendar, because we think the gallery is a great initiative by the Manly council to preserve and keep a record of their local community’s history and culture. You can see the how much they work to highlight the impact of local community on the greater Sydney art scene just by taking a quick squiz at the invite’s inside spread below. The Manly art gallery focuses on Australian and northern beaches ceramics and is well respected for its work in that area. The museum holds thousands of photos of Manly beach life in its collection, including a hilarious section devoted to people sporting old timey bathers. If you visit in person, you’ll be able to enjoy quite a few giggles at the expense of your venerable elders.
The Manly Art Gallery and Museum have got a whole range of different things going on this year, which means they’re sending out quite a lot of content for the audience to digest. We used one of the designers stalwart tools, the humble and often overlooked grid, to display everything clearly and neatly, so that none of these worthy exhibitions misses out. We put the calendar on a 6pp DL foldout brochure, which means the Manly Art Gallery and Museum were able to package a large amount of info into a small, easy to pop in post, mail promotion.
Whether or not one of these lovely invites gets to you in the mail, we hope you have the time soon to enjoy a relaxing beach day at beautiful Manly, and why not pop along to check out some of these great displays while you’re at it?
