Derby Film Festival Launches!

After working on ID Fest for 4 years, we were absolutely thrilled to be asked to work on the next iteration for the wonderfully creative film festival held at QUAD every year.  Now simply called 'Derby Film Festival', this ten day celebration of film is sure to be a wonderful event!  Special guests include the inimitable John Hurt, Phil Davis plus lots more!!

Our approach to the project was inspired by the work of the legendary Saul Bass, whose graphic design for opening sequences was so integral to the movie industry in the 1950s & 60s, working with greats such as Hitchcock, Billy Wilder, Stanley Kubrick and Martin Scorcese.  This look is still as relevant and popular today as it was then.  We felt this, along with a limited colour palette and bold typography created a strong brand identity for the festival that exuded intrigue, fun and entertainment, whilst being a contemporary and innovative place to celebrate the movie industry.

The website with the full festival programme can be viewed here.
