For the visual identity of the festival the black circle is a dominant part and works as an abstract reference to the photo-lens. It creates a distinct visual expression and attracts attention. The design is deliberately free from photographic content, not giving a specific artist more attention than the other. The circle is recurring every year for the design of the festival but comes in slightly different shapes. Together with a vivid color and bold typography it is the constant that ties the annual variations together.
