Media & Entertainment / Göteborg Film Festival
Celebrating the only reason to leave home in January
Visitors to the film festival in Göteborg get to feast on films that rarely, if ever, reach mainstream cinema. The need for an overarching strategy – and a unifying visual identity – has grown alongside a thriving festival that just keeps evolving.
500 films from 89 countries.
Having created templates and guidelines, covering all things visual from typography and iconography to colour and patterns, we fashioned an identity big enough for the festival to grow into.
The festival icon, a dragon, was given sharper features. In a short vignette, the dragon makes a cameo appearance in clips from this year’s crop of films. A 3-D version was created for the festival prize itself, ”The Dragon Award,” while the kids got their very own baby dragon. The 45°-angle is a recurring theme throughout – in graphic elements, typesetting and image cropping.
