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.
The theme for the 2011 festival was “Resistance”. Och Studio experimented with the offset printing process and printed all the printed matters over each other on the same paper sheet. This was done at different times to create a resistance in the design- and printing process. The flyers made a pattern on the poster and the poster became the cover for the program.
