International Festival of Literature Dublin


Red&Grey were asked to design the identity 1 and booklet for the International Literary Festival Dublin. Working in a team we created an identity using InDesign’s hidden typographic characters, 2 referencing the hidden character in all books — the author. Imagery was created by layering different designs and photographing them, referencing the materiality of the book.

  1. The identity section of the project was included in the 100 Archive 2017 selection.

  2. A hidden character is a non-printing character in computer-based text processing and digital typesetting
