“An identity & promotional campaigns for a music & arts festival which takes place annually on the Labour Day in Krk, Croatia.” — studio8585.com
The intriguing display letterforms used for the festival in 2012 are compositions created with the genius layering system that is History. While most applications of History makeostentativeuse of its broad range, this one is more restrained: It’s the skeletal base of History 01, contrasted with tacked-on slab serifs from History 11. To further increase the difference in stroke width, the serifs have been amplified in height. Some custom dots and serifs (on ‘1’, in ‘O’ and ‘0’) were added to achieve a nice pattern. The accompanying face is Irma Text, also from Typotheque.
The 2011 edition featured another peculiar typeface: Jean-Luc is a display freebie by Atelier Carvalho Bernau, inspired by title lettering to movies by Jean-Luc Godard.
