ID NOTES: The 2015 Los Angeles Film Festival identity was designed by Pentagram’s Emily Oberman and team. For this year’s Festival, LA artist Noah Davis was commissioned and he uses "dots of color in a sea of black, evoking the lights of L.A. and the moon at night as seen from the hills around the city." Last year LAFF brought in Ed Ruscha through LA based Ignition.
