Krake Festival Berlin 2016

Krake Festival is an annual Berlin based fes­ti­val for chal­leng­ing elec­tronic music. On 2016 they decided to change their image. The following designs are part of the new art direction made by Geso, including a video teaser and trailer, but also all graphic elements (posters, flyers, stickers, tickets, merchandising, etc.).
The whole project was developed as an art piece for live visuals purpose, using VDMX for generating audioreactive visuals. From all the experiments and captures (check them at Krake I) I designed creatures inspired by the deep ocean’s fauna. Krake means octo­pus and the fes­ti­val is organ­ised in a com­pa­ra­ble way: reach­ing out to selected loca­tions dur­ing one week pre­sent­ing the best in elec­tronic music, what­ever style it is. The fes­ti­val is not huge, not expen­sive, does not have big spon­sor­ing deals or four dif­fer­ent colour area passes. It’s just a good and so far suc­cess­ful try to bring back the focus on artists who dare to step off the beaten tracks.

A fes­ti­val for music lovers.
