OFFF Barcelona 2015 Main Titles by Signalnoise and Onesize

After Hector Ayuso had put Onesize in touch with graphic artist James White (aka Signalnoise) to collaborate on OFFF Barcelona 2015 Main Titles, the question arose: "How will the styles ever mix?" They chose to give the audience a souvenir by printing the titles in the form of a card deck. Fifty three designs were made by James White and his team (back in Canada), while Onesize developed two 80s TV Commercials, selling the card deck and promising a better life for dysfunctional families.This film tells a story about Jason, a boy who bought this deck of cards 30 years ago as a last resort to save his family. It all turned out quite different for him and he blames Sean - the kid in the commercials - whose "no losers, only winners” catchphrase has eaten through Jason’s life like a cancer. Now, in present time, Jason’s journey of revenge is coming to a close. Before the film was shown to the audience at the festival, over 2000 printed versions of the card game where handed out to every single person in the room as "take-away titles".

OFFF Unmasked

We are still under the OFFF influence and one of the reason to visit the festival is to had a chance to get a special art book to complete your collection. This year VASAVA Studio presented their sacral work "OFFF UNMASKED" to the audience.

That what they said: "A new art book celebrating the 15th edition of Barcelona’s OFFF festival is as unique as the event itself. Featuring contributions from renowned illustrators and graphic designers, OFFF Unmasked is a journey into a parallel world, portraying the OFFF community as a mysterious cult with its own legends and rituals. Readers must peer behind the layers of myth to discover the real story of OFFF, its founders and its early supporters. The approach is in tune with the ethos of OFFF, which has always invited its guests to look beneath the surface of creativity.

The book’s host and mascot is Dr. Urgil Vataar, an academic who has made exposing the cult of OFFF his life’s work. This is the first time he has publically detailed his efforts to disentangle truth from fiction. The book was designed by Barcelona design studio Vasava in close collaboration with the OFFF team. It will be given away free to all those who attend the event, making it an extremely premium souvenir indeed. "

OFFF Quebec 2015 by Jean-Paul Frenay

They say you should observe a piece of art deeply to understand its concept and interpret it in your own way, we think that Jean-Paul Frenay took this idea and twisted it into something even bigger than just an interpretation. He made sure to create an introspective “sarcastic” adventure.
