Accent - News from GPG Music

Composer and CEO Steve Martin was featured on the second episode of StylePlus Next Designer TV: GPG Digital Design Studio Challenge. He provided twelve field shows for eight new and diverse uniform designers competing to be the next up and coming costume and flag designer; the winner of the competition earns a year contract with StylePlus for marching arts performers to purchase. The twelve shows are Blue Print, Twinkle, A Brave New World, Cleopatra, Fire and Ice, Macabre, Alcatraz, Pathways, Pyramids of Egypt, Mystery, The Coven, and Babylonia. It’s a great collaboration to use grounded design principles to build a visual look based on the elements of the music. We can’t wait to see how this turns out. #GPGMusic
