Design for artist and curator Phillip McCrilly's Balearic Beets event in Belfast in August 2017. 'Rooting' itself in the cross-genre sensibilities associated with the post-disco, hedonistic stylings of the 1980s dance movement, the event was part of an extended food project exploring the links between music culture and food. Fusing together a number of disparate culinary reference points, the project highlighted the work of several local producers through a number of fermented, foraged, and pickled offerings. 12" Riso printed posters doubled as place-mats, as well as being scaled down for mix-CD covers.
