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.
