Long-term clients are often those for whom design studios do their best work – the build up of mutual trust and the ability to develop ideas over time lends itself to bodies of work that both designer and client can look back on with pride. Which is very much the case with Silk Pearce and Aldeburgh Music in Suffolk, the organisation which stages performances, educational programmes and the Aldeburgh Festival at Snape Maltings Concert Hall, the venue made famous by Benjamin Britten.
Dovecote and Maltings
In addition to creating all the season brochures for Aldeburgh Music since 1999 (over 60 in total), the team’s design work has included: Aldeburgh Music’s corporate identity, fund-raising literature, websites, signage schemes and promotional campaigns, including that for the 2013 Britten centenary celebrations.

Silk Pearce at Aldeburgh Music, which opens at Snape Maltings on August 1, will feature prints of some of the most memorable images created by Peter Silk and Rob Steer of Silk Pearce for the Festival’s seasonal brochures over the last 15 years.
