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.

For the 2011 fest­ival the graph­ic shape was a par­al­lel­o­gram, used both on its own and as part of a repeat­ing pat­tern. On the screen prin­ted fly­ers four dif­fer­ent pat­terns were used to give them a unique feel. The pro­gram bor­rowed its form­at and inlay paper from a clas­sic cheap paper­back. As a con­trast, the pro­gram was covered in cloth and stapled togeth­er with the inlay.
