Inclusive Events for Everyone

Born from the TV and film industry, which gave birth to the name ‘h264’ from the video compression codec. h264 was created as a bi-monthly event platform featuring up and coming musicians, spoken word artists and short film screenings hosted at ‘The Book Club’ in the heart of Shoreditch. The aim was to develop a creative space for people to discuss, collaborate and experience. All proceeds of the night went to the charity ‘Shelter’.

Concept

To create fresh branding which would position the night under it’s own unique voice and guide, away from the numerous competitors surrounding it. The chosen visual direction being one which would create intrigue into the night itself, at a time when everyone else was trying their hardest to use giant type and shout as loudly as possible. h264 would be the quiet voice at the back of the room which didn’t need to be hear by everyone. Just the people who cared.

Solution

The logotype was developed via the means of contruction and destruction. It was created via scanning printed type while simultaneously moving it. The concept being to create something which felt dynamic, distorted and broken down. As though the images were compressed using the h.264 codec. It was placed across the photography as a way to deconstruct the images, and create the sense of immersion between and within the branding.

The use of photography required the subject to have a penetrating gaze, as if you were the performer and the subjects the audience, watching you. It. it was important people felt engaged by the design, to spark curiosity about the night and look into it, rather than just being told what it was.
