Last month I worked on a little brochure for the first ever Pocket Film Festival, taking place in Stafford. As a brand new venture grown through Flatpack:Assemble there was no existing assets to work with, so I followed my own concept of basing the design on 'things that fit in your pocket'. This first iteration featured a matchbox containing some tiny illustrated film festival 'parts', like a little kit of collected items for use by borrower-sized types. This also informed the use of yellow and red throughout the design scheme. The festival guide was A6 in size, cross folding out into an A4 page featuring all the film content, from archival footage to La La Land.
What I love about the approach to Pocket Film Festival was that it was locally driven and locally executed. It gave audiences the chance to explore new spaces, as well as shine a light on venues and groups who already programme regular film screenings. Locations included a mico-pub and historic courtroom. Here are some lovely people called Dave & Jemma at The Picture House and (below) Andy, owner of Foodgate Ale House, holding my designs to promote the festival in the Staffordshire Newsletter. Hats off to you, people of Staffs. It's been a pleasure.
