Since 1964, the Theatertreffen festival has been an annual event in Berlin. It offers an overview of the latest plays and renditions on distinguished German, Austrian and Swiss stages. The festival is organised by the Berliner Festspiele, one of the largest German institutions for culture with numerous well-known and illustrious events to its name. And it was the director of the Berlin Festspiele, Dr Thomas Oberender who commissioned Scholz & Volkmer to create the design for the print media.
For the Berlin team, who mostly work digitally, creating an editorial design was a welcome challenge. Within a short period of time and with a lot of hard grind, the poster, the programme flyer and the Festival Magazine for the 54th Theatertreffen festival were finished. The design, however, will continue to live on beyond that, as the typography, layout and colour system will continue to be the basis for the design of future promotional material.
