This workshop will help you infuse emotion through an abstract identity for an art festival - a sculpture biennale. You will learn how to distill the brand attributes and form a concept. Moving forward you will apply this concept in an abstract set of visuals that speak about the art without showcasing it, but rather emotionally present it. To build the visuals, you will learn how to mix digital and analog images and build a strong art direction. Then, learn to use typography and layout design to bring all this together and make a compelling brand identity that can be applied to bring joy to the targeted audience.
This session will be carried out using a Zoom video call.
