Women's Bandura Ensemble

Event design and branding

The Women's Bandura Ensemble is one of the first full ensembles for women playing the Ukrainian traditional instrumental, bandura. Traditionally played by men, the bandura is a large instrument with approximately 52 strings. Since this was our first concert series, I wanted to emphasize the idea of growth and renewal, and chose the flowering plant motif to reflect that. Since there was a mix of Ukrainian and American audience members, the board and I thought carefully about what contextual information to include, and decided to have both Ukrainian and English translations of the song list, which is always a fun typographic challenge to resolve. I enjoyed creating the branding for this series and organizing the information in the program.
