Festival identity

Logos 2017 and 2018

Creation of a new identity for The New Yorker Festival, an annual event organized by The New Yorker magazine. It is held in venues in and around New York City, typically in early October, bringing together "a who’s-who of the arts, politics and everything in between." Thanks to Lineto for use of the brilliant Prismaset font family (2018 logo).
