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.
This year, the theme for the festival was “Boundaries”, for example that between art and literature. The watercolor-painted shape was inspired by land borders and stone walls. In the program it is used on its own, unlike on the poster where several forms creates a border.
