The Only Connect Festival of Sound 2015, titled The Deep, explores the substructures of sound and music. Underwater and underground, through deep time and immersive song, in sacred space and anechoic chambers, rumbling from human bodies and deep sea.

A series of several deeply textured figures that float in white space were created as the main visual theme for the festival’s design, with each version of the figures appearing only once across the printed material. A typographic glitch was also incorporated into the main headline type, in a style reminiscent of Vic Carless’s classic 1973 font Shatter. The festival’s program is divided into two halves with two front covers to accommodate both English and Norwegian texts.
