HowTheLightsGetsIn is the world’s largest philosophy and music festival

With 600 acts spread over 10 days, it’s a vibrant mix of philosophical debate, cabaret, music and performance (including two nobel prize winners, Giles Peterson & Ghostpoet).

Design of the whole communication of the festival following and improving an existing guideline.

New website, more accessible, comtemporary and eye-catching with strong visuals to give a taste of the atmosphere during the festival. Friendly journey for the user! Each detail has been thought to make the user journey easier thanks to data and an agile method of work to adapt the design accordingly.

The number of tickets have been increased by 3 compare to the previous year.

Due to a very tight deadline and a lot of assets needed, I also got the opportunity to lead a team of junior designers.

50+ pieces of coverage, Highest ever ticket sales and 5500 + more followers on Instagram, 6,000+ on Facebook & 5,000 + on Twitter.


A communications strategy that was both broad enough to generate awareness and deep enough to appeal to fans of niche subjects.
