Visual identity for the feature film “I Defended Gavrilo Princip”
We created a visual identity for another creative and historical gem, “I Defended Gavrilo Princip”, from the production company Košutnjak Film. Most of us know the circumstances that occurred that led to the outbreak of WWI, who ere the protagonists of the assassination in Sarajevo and what happened next. As the world marched toward the centenary of the events, Košutnjak Film decided to make a feature film about the incidents.
We came up with the idea that bearer of the identity should be the logo and title “I Defended Gavrilo Princip” itself. For this purpose, we carved the words in a specific manner on a wooden board and digitalized it to depict the atmosphere of a prison cell, where Gavrilo Princip spent his days. The film is based on documented data and tells the story from quite a different perspective, the viewpoint of the lawyer who defended Princip.
