Open City Documentary Festival
Open City Documentary Festival is the one of the UK's biggest film festivals dedicated solely to the art of documentary film making. Following a successful pitch, OCDF asked to re-design the festival identity and printed materials. The identity is based on the concept of creating an open space in the community, which is exactly what the festival promotes. The client wanted the identity to reflect the festival's young and modern atmosphere. Using simple graphic devices and subtle imagery a considered, recognisable and fresh image was created for the festival to thrive on. To help showcase the event a range of promotional materials were developed including a 20 page newspaper, 60 page brochure, posters, flyers, banners, tote bags, badges, stickers, signage and way-finding.
With the new identity and approach, Open City Documentary Festival was well received by new and existing audiences. Time Out Magazine said “In it’s fifth year, Open City reigns supreme as London’s finest documentary festival”
