Textival is an organ­isa­tion for pub­lish­ers, cul­tur­al magazines and lit­er­ary-ori­ented asso­ci­ations. During the last week­end of March each year, Textival arranges a fest­ival in Gothenburg with talks, read­ings and work­shops as well as a book fair.

Och Studio has designed posters, fly­ers and pro­grams for the fest­ival since 2011. The visu­al con­cept for the fest­ival revolves around a new graph­ic shape each year, that is used in dif­fer­ent ways through­out the vari­ous com­mu­nic­a­tion mater­i­als. Each year, new col­ors are used whil­st the typeface stays the same.

Layers in lit­er­at­ure” was the theme for this years fest­ival and this was examined through his­tor­ic­al, social, polit­ic­al, mater­i­al and aes­thet­ic dimen­sions. Och Studio designed a three dimen­sion­al shape that was pho­to­graphed to be used in all com­mu­nic­a­tion. Based on a draw­ing the shape was first made in clay, which was then scanned and 3D prin­ted. The dif­fer­ent stages and lay­ers of the pro­cess was all part of the visu­al con­cept.
