Branding & Identity
A series of wordmarks were designed, inspired by themes of Los Angeles. The first set uses a disorderly grid (the city layout), the second after K-Town's influences, and the third uses water and pool motifs:
The final design was influenced by swimming pools and Ed Ruscha's relationship to Los Angeles, often documented in his work.
Each 'O' in the name of the event took on a different pool shape, which then became a responsive logo element for other collateral material. The poster was typeset in Gridnik, which resembled Ruscha's lettering.
