Graphic Fest

For festivals and fairs, identity design is an integral aspect and a starting point of organisation. Be it tackling a different theme each year for a recurring event or starting something new, attractiveness, energy and distinctive designs are sought out for, while freshness for long-running festivals and fairs is a must. A process that juggles a vast variety of aspects including logo, souvenirs, custom application design, environment setting, type design and more, Graphic Fest shines the light on the comprehensive and systematic approach festivals and fairs take. Informative and inspiring, it is the ultimate resource book for event identities.

Collecting the work of 20 acclaimed artists, this book includes a statement from each artist, essays about the residency program, and conversations with the studio collaborators.

Dot Line Shape

As much as skills and styles matter when it comes to design, every visual begins with a fundamental element that can be enhanced or expanded into an aesthetically pleasing and meaningful piece of work. Whether they serve as simple points of focus or building blocks for complex patterns, these elements present countless possibilities when combined with purpose and principles like contrast, balance, rhythm, and white space. Going back to basics, DOT, LINE, SHAPE is a comprehensive collection of projects that manifest the three elements in inspiring and ingenious ways to bring unique creative visions to life. No matter how trends or platforms change over time, they serve as timeless components that provide designers and artists around the world with infinite means of expression to make a lasting impact.
