Icelandic graphic designer Einar Guòmundsson has collaborated with Guillermo Vázquez Bustelo on the identity for this year’s Stockfish Film Festival. This is the festival’s first iteration with the Stockfish name and the identity is fittingly bright, fun and abstract for its inaugural year. The illustrations represent ideas relating to Reykjavik and the film industry; camera elements, film reel and fish skin to name but a few. They are abstracted into patterns and fit together to form a sort of flag and a visual language for the festival.
Stockfish European Film Festival is held in Reykjavik, and has been held under various names since the 70s. It shows experimental arthouse cinema.
