    Freak is a three days festival born from the mix of balkan music, old circus arts and live performances. The result is a mix of vintage circus posters, psychedelic colors and type combinations.

    The name of the festival is a reference to the old circus where “shows phenomena” were part of the show. In this case the anomaly / alteration in the letter “A” is a nod to the old show. This concept is accomplished by a particular and deformed typographical set that give the event its own identity.

      The logo appears to be based on Carouselambra, Ray Larabie’s “tribute to the lettering on Led Zeppelin’s Houses of the Holy album sleeve” [Typodermic] (1973, designed by Hipgnosis), which in turn references the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
