Lastly, was designing a programme to give attendees at the event. The pamphlet entails information on the event and bands, set times, key events, and a map of the venue. The idea of designing a small programme came from the issue of carrying around a booklet. The programme is designed to fit into attendees’ pockets or attach to their keychains, this idea was also inspired by the fact that moshing is popular in the hardcore music scene.
