Christchurch Arts Festival 2015
branding, graphic design
The story they wanted to tell was one of “shifting the lens” to the people in the audience. Showing how art shifts you as a viewer. We did a city-wide search for four faces that embodied our citizenry and their different backgrounds. With the help of award-winning photographer, Dean McKenzie, we captured their essential selves, then we shifted them by playing with the lens.
Partnering with the Christchurch Arts Festival has been an opportunity for us to create brand work that is challenging and provocative. Like a piece of art should be. This iteration of the CAF brand is thematically underpinned by the word “shift”. The idea being, we are exploring how Christchurch has shifted as a culture in the past years, and also how art can shift a person, emotionally.
