FESTIVAL GRAPHICS 2007 - 2011
The National School of Drama, New Delhi hosts a prestigious annual theatre festival showcasing performances from regional theatre groups as well as large scale productions by renowned international theatre and dance groups.
Our task was to create a graphic signature for the festival to capture the energy, colour and scale of the event.
Every year since 2007, we have designed new thematic graphics for the festival which are then applied to all the various festival collaterals.
The ‘signature’ we designed was non-formal and dynamic, reflecting the variety, energy and creativity of the festival, and infused with rich colour and vibrancy.
The different expressions
and theatrical gestures used on stage form the main graphics for the festival.
Silhouettes of actors from different plays of the past
years have been used for the visual language for the 50th year of NSD.
The mask is the universal symbol for play acting. This year's identity was a mask composed of miniature scenes from different plays.
The identity this year highlighted the diversity in languages at the Theatre Utsav
The Thayyam mask composed of all the names of plays being staged in that year.
The myriad colours and fragments of drama and theatre are put together in this dramatic facial expression.
The essence of drama, expressions and emotion caught in the cross lights was the theme for this year.
