About the Graphic Design Festival Scotland 2018 identity

As with every year, the founders, Beth and James of Warriors Studio, redesign the festival identity and this year has us casting our gaze back over the last 5 years, and celebrating how much they have grown. From humble beginnings to the rambunctious toddler Graphic Design Festival Scotland is today. A collaboration between festival founders Warriors Studio and Glasgow’s, Cause & Effect, they applied they design skills to that often-neglected graphic goldmine; the children’s birthday party.

After a few years of more conceptual, theoretical identity design, they wanted to create something that was fun, bold but most importantly, a bit cheeky. Combining 3D renders, a truly bizarre mix of typefaces, and a plethora of hidden surprises on the website, they sought to evoke childhood memories of birthdays, albeit twisted off-kilter.
