Sydney Design Festival has been running for 20 years, making it one of the oldest design festivals in the world. It provides its visitors with an opportunity to understand design practice in all its forms, to bring to light problem, process and response, and to foster a closer connection with the designers and businesses helping to shape our collective futures. With a change in dates, moving the festival from September to March, placing amongst a busy cultural calendar, the festival worked with Re to develop a graphic identity that would allow it to stand out and announce its new Autumn arrival across a variety of digital and printed communications. These included a responsive website, event programs, flags, banners, posters, flyers, invitations and environmental graphics.

Abodo worked with Richards Partners to better articulate its brand story, bring clarity to and emphasise the company’s respect for timber; where it comes from, where it is used and by whom, while also clearly communicating its ambition to architects and designers around the world through catalogue and website design.
