I can’t be the only person who thinks that the front cover of the 2012 Brighton Festival brochure looks like an advert for the Orient Express – sorry, Venice Simplon Express. What is happening here; this is about the fourth festival brochure that has a truly unappealing front cover? I want a cover that reflects the Brighton Festival of 2012 not 1912!

The brochure was designed by Harrison & Co, who I am sure normally do really excellent work, and the inside is actually really very good with nice new icons – but the cover just doesn’t do it for me. Sorry fellas…..
