London Festival of Architecture launches graphic design competition for 2019 Festival branding

The London Festival of Architecture (LFA) has launched a graphic design competition to create and oversee the branding and merchandising for the 2019 edition of the Festival, welcoming applications from creatives across the industry, including graphic designers, architects, designers and artists.

The competition aims to harness the creativity of individuals and organisations with a passion and interest in graphic design, to develop a fresh and exciting new perspective on the LFA’s online, print and product presence. Tying into the Festival’s mission to champion budding talent at all stages and from all disciplines, the project also offers the opportunity for the winning applicant to showcase their graphic design skills to London’s wider architectural community and the Festival’s global audience.

Since its founding in 2004, the LFA has grown to become the world’s largest annual architecture festival, attracting a public audience of well over 600,000 people in 2018 and a global media audience of millions. As a result, the impressive community of architecture and design practices and practitioners, leading cultural and academic institutions, artists and many others that shape the Festival’s programme of events each June, has only grown and diversified, to deliver a Festival programme that has something for everyone.

This competition therefore marks the beginning of a larger step-change in the Festival’s branding and merchandising, to reflect this growth and enable the LFA team to increase the quality, breath and lasting impact of the materials that visitors associate with the Festival.

This will include devising a strategy to develop a range of LFA branding material that can be displayed at events and distributed to organisers, as well as the design of online and print graphics and templates, ranging from letterheads to the formatting of the press material issued at the annual programme launch each May.

Building on the Festival’s existing brand presence, this project offers the winning applicant the creative freedom to develop this in a unique direction, aiding organisers in their branding and improving wayfinding for visitors as they explore various events, while helping to further establish the Festival as a recognisable brand across the capital.

The competition is a two-stage submission, with applicants invited to submit their initial expressions of interest by midnight on Sunday 10 March. The shortlisted applicants will then present their proposals to the jury who will decide the winner. Uniquely, the competition jury will be made up of the small and dynamic LFA team, along with Steven Harding from Goodfellow Communications, our PR Agency.

The winning applicant will be awarded a monthly retainer of £1,500 and will work closely with the LFA team throughout the next six months. If necessary, this can include desk space for the winner – potentially a great place from which to start and grow a business.

Architecture Film Festival: Open Call 2019!

As video equipment in the 1970s made filmmaking more accessible, architects started making films as part of their practice, and they continue to do so today, in increasingly creative ways. Filmmaking always takes place, in a city, in a building, virtual or not. And at the same time, everyone living in today’s technological reality, where mobile phones, drones and VR play an integral part in our everyday lives, inevitably have to consider our built environment.

Now returning for another year, our friends and close collaborators at the Architecture Film Festival London, have launched their open call for film submissions themed ‘Architecture+Film’. As the first festival in London focused on the relation between film and architecture, filmmakers from all backgrounds and nationalities are welcome to submit films to the following four categories:

    • Documentary (Feature Length, max 120min)
    • Fiction (Short, max 30min)
    • Experimental (Short, max 30min)
    • ‘Boundaries’ (Short, Max 30min) – open to films that respond to our LFA2019 theme of ‘Boundaries

Have an interest in film or know someone who does? This is a fantastic platform to share your passion and showcase your thoughts on our LFA theme of ‘boundaries’ from a new perspective.For more information on the open call and entry criteria, click here to head over to the Architecture Film Festival London website. The submission deadline is 31 March 2019 and films should be uploaded and submitted via this link. Don’t miss this brilliant opportunity to get involved – we’re looking forward to seeing the world of film take on our 2019 theme!
