“Theatertage” was a theater festival hosted in Karlsruhe, during which 27 theater companies from southern Germany performed 43 plays in 10 days. The theater management chose the title “Ungerecht” (unfair/unjust) based on the idea that theater plays are able to push discussions about deplorable states in politics and society.
We designed the program book as part of a broader communication strategy that was created in collaboration with a group of designers from the University of Art and Design in Karlsruhe. Referring to the title of the event, the design concept was defined to be rough, brutal, using dominant strong black bars making it intentionally difficult for the recipient.
The program book follows this concept, starting from the challenging/confusing cover to the mainly black/white inner pages. As a contrast, the neon yellow pages mark all the events for children. In the back cover, there is a foldable A3 map and event calendar.
