Glasgow, 2014 – ongoing

Nominated for Design Museum Designs of the Year 2015

The biennial Glasgow International (Festival of Visual Art) showcases the city as a unique major centre for contemporary visual art. Taking place in various venues and locations across the city, including Glasgow’s major art spaces and cultural institutions, the Festival comprises an ambitious programme of exhibitions, events, talks, performances and projects by international and Glasgow-based artists.

Kellenberger–White was commissioned to design the identity for the Festival’s 2014 edition. The identity is a highly characterful typeface that captures the quickness and scale of large hand-painted lettering used on warehouses, docks and ships throughout Glasgow’s industrial waterfront.

The visual identity will be used for the Festival’s signage and online and print marketing campaigns.
