Typedesign and poster by Felix Weigand
The theme of the 2006 Happy Days Sound Festival was ‘Periphery: Exploring localness through sound’. The visual identity of the second Happy Days Sound Festival was based upon a typeface developed by Felix Weigand
for the Ny Musikk No Sound
project. The typeface plays on visual musical references and was used for the logo, the poster, the newspaper and buttons made for the festival.
The festival newspaper opens with a photo of a ‘non-space’ in a central part of Oslo and ends with a text by Social Anthropologist Theodor Barth discussing this place as a necessary ‘non-centre’ of the city.
