The Images of Cultural Diversity and Heritage project was the outcome of the partnership of three institutions: the University of Warsaw, the University of Bergen and the Nordic Anthropological Film Association (NAFA). The project was made up of three events: a Festival of anthropological and documentary films, a scientific conference focused on visual anthropology and European cultural heritage, and a series of workshops.
I was asked to design a full visual identity for the event, including booklets, posters, invitations, a catalogue and a big-format posters for the exhibition. I enjoy working with cultural institutions since you always need to investigate an event in depth, which allows for the opportunity to learn many interesting things. Additionally, I feel the organisers and I share an educational mission.
When creating a visual identity for the Images Of Cultural Diversity And Heritage project, I wished to show multiculturalism and diversity in a muted and warm form. The yellow weave pattern symbolizes multiculturalism and the blue hieroglyphs symbolize heritage. The dialogue of these two elements is the substance of the identity.
