These are our competition poster design concepts for the 8th festival which started in June, 2010. Our idea was to create minimalistic and provocative poster design which. The idea is to illustrate in a creative and witty way the essence of the festival. We used common symbols to express the basic keywords of the festival – for short we’ve used scissors as a symbol, for movies – 3d cinema glasses , for fun – colors, for seaside – waves and fish. We used simple shapes and plain colors in order to create an elegant connection between the poster illustration and the logo of the festival.
