A hand-painted typeface to brand an arts festival

The biennial Glasgow International showcases the city as a unique major centre for contemporary visual art. 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 hand-painted digitised font maximised inexpensive materials.
