Funka Fest 2019 Animated Stickers

The Festival

Funka Fest is an organisation that promotes the professionalism of artistic practice with a cultural offering, stimulating the circulation of contemporary arts and formation of new audiences. Funka Fest highlights the current trend of art to other disciplines, providing the dialogue between visual arts, performing arts, music, applied arts and culinary arts. They know that today’s art is dispersed in multiple circuits, which allows diverse notions and ideas to flow from discipline to discipline. Because of this, they have an array of diverse speakers from various industries.


Social Media Marketing

With brands finding it a necessity to connect with consumers via different platforms and touch-points to create a multi-dimensional brand experience, stickers are another way for them to amplify that experience. Stickers are a revolutionary tool because it enables marketers to have their brand present in their customers everyday conversations across mobile. In other words, their brand becomes a permanent part of their customer’s life.

Poster Animations

Additional Work

I also created an animated version of the official Funka Fest 2019 poster. The poster was very beautifully designed with great use of texture so it was very exciting to take this piece to the next level and breathe life into all the individual elements.
