the images festival is a yearly international event for experimental film and new media art in toronto. sarah dorkenwald worked with fellow designer emily varty to develop a specific design concept for the 2005 festival.


the ‘identity image’ that she created was a photographic montage of one of the festival pieces beamed out into the sky above toronto's tree canopy, as if projected out of a search light. she developed a signature typographic system and applied this image to various print collateral (posters, ads, invitations, flyers, cataloge) and the 2005 festival web site.
