Chaos Forum

Falmouth Illustration Forum 2019 

The Chaos Forum was a collaborative project between myself, Chloe Bonfield and Lizzie Ridout to create a visual identity for the Falmouth Illustration Forum 2019, which was on the theme of socially and politically engaged illustration. 


We started with an image I drew of a cross-section of an ash tree with dieback and went from there. We saw the tree as an exemplar of the chaos and uncertainty of our current political and environmental climate. We ended up with an edition of 200 brochures, each one hand-assembled and made using a combination of digital and riso printing. The cover of each brochure can be unfolded to create a poster. It is also designed to be read from the inside-outwards.


In addition to the brochures, we also designed and created other promotional ephemera, including riso-printed posters and tickets (see below) and digital gifs and e-vites.
