Forme Fluide was a three-days workshop about editorial design, created by Lago Film Fest, curated by makethatstudio and propelled by pixartprinting.
The lake of Lago - 1200 meters long and 500 meters large - near Vittorio Veneto, is the main stage of the Lago Film Fest. The participants of the workshop, have been invited to take part in a moment of research and analysis about the relationship between water and image to print a zine. The group has been split into three different team with three distinct research areas: the bottom of the lake, the shore of the water mirror and the inhabitants of Lago town.
Abstract and architectural drawings have been melted with scans, interviews, and photos, and the result of this workshop is a book called Forme Fluide. The publication has been printed in a limited edition of 250 copies from which has been extracted a selection of eight posters exhibited during the Festival.
