Programme guide design using our typeface ‘Utopia’ ‘Utopie’, which was designed as part of an overall graphic system and identity for Eventi Letterari — a festival of Literary Events in Monte Verità (literally Hill of Truth).
The festival is located in the Swiss canton of Ticino, which has served as the site of many different ‘utopian’ and cultural events and communities since the beginning of the twentieth century. This was when an alternative, vegetarian colony was founded on the site, and the mythical golden age of Monte Verità began. Artists, anarchists, philosophers and thinkers settled there and share ideas. The typeface used was awarded a Red Dot Design Award in 2013.
