A project paying homage to theatre wins “On the Rise 2022” Graphic Design award at the OFFF festival
‘Llantiol Teatre’ by Thinh Truong, third-year Motion Graphics student at IED Barcelona, has received the Wix Playground and OFFF “On the Rise 2022” award at OFFF Barcelona, in the best Graphic Design category.
The proposal focuses on a rebranding of Café Teatro Llantiol, an emblematic venue in the historic centre of Barcelona, which has seen numerous artists perform on its stage throughout its more than twenty-year history.
Conceived as a tribute to the theatre from a contemporary perspective, the project reflects the idiosyncrasies of the building through the use of typography, lines, shapes and a specific colour palette.
Thanks to this recognition, Thinh will exhibit his project on the OFFF Roots stage at Disseny Hub Barcelona on 6 May, as well as receive a one-on-one mentoring session with renowned Graphic Designer Paula Scher.
OFFF is a festival that promotes all kinds of activities and conferences linked to the creative scene and serves as a meeting point and source of inspiration for communities of artists from a wide range of disciplines.
This is the first edition in which the festival has launched the Wix Playground and OFFF “On the Rise 2022” award, which has proved a great success, receiving over 500 projects from 40 different countries, all vying for a single prize in each category: Graphic Design, Creative/Art Direction, Type, Illustration, 3D/Motion, Web Immersive/New Media and Portfolio.
