XENON logo

In collaboration with British graphic designer Hugh Frost, I have developed a logo for the project. Referring back to the central theme of the ‘stranger’, we drew inspiration from VISA stamps on passports and official 'entry permits'. In the logo, the word XENON is surrounded by 6 dots, which refer to the constellation of the 6 commissioning festivals. The dots are tied together with a wavy line which is an abstracted fence or barbed wire with spikes. The smudged look is a further reference to official stamps and was achieved by physically printing the logo and subjecting it to various distressing manual processes. Visitors coming to see the events receive a XENON entry visa stamped onto their hand or ticket, as is customary in some clubs and festivals.
