The Story Behind the Scenes

by Janina Boesch

This logo design is a visual translation of the meaning behind the UN Documentary Film Festival "Stories from the Field". It is more than a plain symbol fulfilling it's purpose as a logo - it tells a story and conveys a deeper meaning on an emotional level.
The camera is the main focus. It is surrounded by boxes and luggage to imply the "nomadic" nature of the films celebrated in the film festival. A child is standing on a suitcase utilizing it as a means to explore the seemingly unfamiliar view of a camera.
The design of this logo represents both, the audience who is watching a story evolve and the film makers who not only create those stories but who also meet and get to know the characters "behind the scene".
