Flatpack Festival marks tenth anniversary with eye-catching revamp

Flatpack Festival have just released early details of their upcoming tenth birthday celebrations this Spring, marked by a bold design re-vamp.

Born in a Digbeth pub as a short film night, Flatpack Film Festival has since grown in many interesting and wonderful direction, and their refreshed identity commemorates the festival’s grand entrance into double figures.

A one-of-a-kind film jamboree, Flatpack presents a jam-packed week of screenings, performances, installations and happenings.

Kicking off slightly later than usual (19-24 April), and keeping a tighter focus on central Birmingham this year, you can expect the usual boundary-defying cinematic fun and games. Venues will range from the UK’s oldest cinema to a large multi-coloured inflatable, with Birmingham Museum’s grandiose Gas Hall serving as the festival hub.

Designed by Justin Hallström with Art Direction from Hannah Myatt, the playful and bold brand identity was made with hand painted wooden panels, and assembled in 3D.

We wanted something celebratory; something befitting Flatpack’s usual eye-catching design that reflects the spirit of our festival, with a slightly more partyish element given the festivals impending birthday.
