I've been working on a new identity for a young Irish independent Film Festival only in its second year. I've been undecided about a symbol I've been working on for it and I remember when I first came up with the idea I was delighted, I think Ive spent so much time looking at it at this stage that it's starting to annoy me. Looking for fresh thoughts on the symbol as for now the typeface being used is Office. I'd be delighted for any positive/negative feedback/ideas..
The brand attributes include, Vibrant, approachable, Current, Energetic - Supportive. The festival is run by volunteers and all funding comes from sponsorship.
The client currently wants to run with a more aligned version of no.4, I however feel it looks very corporate and very un-'festival' like. This has been the arrangement they have been wanting to go with for quite sometime and most other ideas have been variations on this.
Forget colour for the moment, any thoughts and ideas?
