Nippon Connection

Festival Design for the Japanese Film Festival Nippon Connection 2016 in Frankfurt am Main.

At the heart of the design are Jōge-es – Japanese tipping pictures with bizarre figures. If you rotate it by 180 degrees you can see a different figure. This mechanics was also applied typographically. The information can be read either in German or Japanese depending on the orientation. Adjacent to each other, an infinitely expandable pattern is created. That surprising moment when you change the perspective and see a new image shall inspire the viewer to rediscover Japan and the Japanese film.
