Kathmandu Triennale 2077

Identity

The identity for Kathmandu Triennale 2077, the upcoming 2022 iteration of the Kathmandu International Art Festival with a focus on Nepal-centric art and culture within a global and future-minded context, consists of an idiosyncratic typographic treatment of wide initial characters in both Latin and Devanagari scripts.

The type is paired with a custom monogram, applied in a pattern, in which, through rotation, “2,” “0,” “7,” “7,” and the Devanagari equivalents are all visible. This is also in turn paired with a patchwork of vibrant textures, local reference materials, and distorted digital effects, with an eye towards the vernacular.
