For the 2015 season, the Savannah Music Festival commissioned illustrator Mark Smith.
Mark Smith is an illustrator based in Exeter in the United Kingdom and has worked for clients around the world in advertising, editorial and publishing. His simple and visually striking images have appeared in a wide array of illustration annuals and magazines, including The Guardian, The Washington Post, and Creative Quarterly. He has also received numerous awards and been recognized by the NY Society of Illustrators, the Association of Illustrators, and 3×3 Magazine.
The image of this season’s poster illustration draws inspiration from the festival’s host city’s proximity to the Savannah River, one of Georgia’s longest and largest waterways and a shipping channel for the Port of Savannah, the nation’s tenth-busiest port for oceangoing container ships. Pictured is a paddle steamer bringing the music into Savannah with the reflections showing a banjo emanating from the wheelhouse.
