Weíre absolutely delighted to be able to reveal the amazing artwork created for us by multi-award-winning British illustrator, author, and musician Martin Springett ( https://martinspringett.com/ ). Martin has beautifully incorporated the Festivalís traditional sun symbol, which has appeared on every RoSFest poster since the very first edition, the newly adopted frigate bird emblem, representing perseverance and strength which reflects our commitment and determination to take the festival into the future, and the personification of Spring bursting forth from a fabulous bloom. 

We hope you all love it as much as we do. Check out our introduction to Martin on our website at http://rosfest.org/rosfest-featured-artist-martin-springett/

Never heard of him but he looks old enough to be a prog fan. :P
