Stories from the Chestnut Woods

  typeface design — 2019

I made a typeface for some titles and credits for a film Stories from the Chestnut Woods (Zgodbe iz kostanjevih gozdov). Film was directed by Gregor Božič and written by Gregor Božič and Marina Gumzi. Illustration for the poster was done by BlexBolex.

Synopsis: In a decaying forest on the Yugoslav-Italian border in the years after World War II, a stingy, old carpenter and a lonely, young chestnut seller share imaginative memories of the past as they weigh fateful decisions for the future, in this touching homage to a lost way of life.
Film premiered at TIFF in Toronto and received record awards at Slovenian Film Festival.
