Dekmantel Festival 2018
Every year the festival style evolves a bit further. For 2018 we tried to make it even more simple and stronger with less colours. And at the same time give the rigid square more freedom and movement. Like this it is both recognizable and progressive.
The identity is used for festival site materials, such as flags, maps and signage, but is mostly an online campaign directed at their international social following.
Dekmantel is a Amsterdam based versatile music organization that releases cutting-edge dance music and is also a festival well appreciated for its deep and genuine passion for underground dance music. The 2018 edition of the festival took place at venues around the Amsterdam IJ and in Het Amsterdamse Bos, from August 1 to 5.
