Buxton Festival Fringe selects winning design

Buxton Festival Fringe has announced the winner of its competition to design the cover of this year’s Fringe programme. 

The judges’ unanimous choice was Hannah Webb, a 21-year-old graphic design student at Manchester School of Art, whose winning design was described as fun, fresh and funky. 

She said: “My inspiration behind the design was the festival itself. I wanted it to be colourful and vibrant to reflect the creativity and lively feel of the Buxton Fringe. 

“I’m so excited to have won. I can’t wait to see my design printed on the programmes.” 

Hannah lives in Whaley Bridge, where she has been doing design work for the town such as the FAB Market posters. 

She won the £100 prize for her colourful artwork which will be used on thousands of Fringe programmes as well as on the flyers and other publicity for the event in July. 

The runner up was Buxton artist Pam Smart, while a Buxton Community School student Polly Luc Bartels was highly commended. 

Entries will be published on the Fringe website.
