Oslo Bokfestival is the largest book festival in Norway with over 180 local and domestic writers, authors and publishers. The festival covers over 200 events on 15 different stages. A book festival is a celebration of words so I decided to use typography as the main visuals and chose knockout as the primary typeface for it´s wide range of weights and it´s "bookshelf" look.Quotes on books from politicians, humorists, authors and artists were used as graphic elements throughout. The colors were inspired by the muted tones of worn-out books in addition to being a contrast to the primary colors used by every bookstore and publisher in Norway.
