Charlotte Gastaut designed the 2019 poster that draws us into a Japanese dream (Japanese animation is in the spotlight this year), the impression of movement, lightness and contrasts, and lacustrine reflections.
The origins of the idea…
„The idea was to harmonise the themes of this year’s Festival (Japan, cuisine), Annecy and animation, all within one image.
I worked on my design by adopting the Japanese printing codes: colour graduation, mist and space. I conjured up the sense of animation with the movement of the floating leaves, the time passing with day and night. Cuisine is brought to life through the acidulous colours and the rice grain print on her clothes. Annecy, with the lake, and the mountains reflected in the water. Just like that, the poster was born!“
Born in April 1974 in Marseille, Charlotte Gastaut studied at the ESAG, a graphic design school in Paris.
