NoHo Students Made That!

Film Festival Looks to NoHo Art Students for Design


The NoHo Arts District can be called the NoHo Arts Collaboration because the amount of work our neighborhood produces is a collaborative effort. That doesn’t stop with our students either. Our pals at the International Film Festival North Hollywood have teamed up with graphic design students at the Art Institute of California’s North Hollywood campus to design a new look and logo for the non-profit organization as they prepare for their inaugural event, scheduled for April 2016. The students spent 12 weeks creating and refining their designs to produce an official logo, poster, t-shirt, business cards and letterhead. Instructor Mandy Green guided the class in “a real-word experience” designing materials for a film festival, she said, for which the students receive college credit.

“The work was exceptional. Many designs were on par with professional graphic designers I have worked with on logos,” said Nicholas Goodman, Festival Director. “This is a great example of how we are working with private and public groups to make the film festival an interactive community event.”

The festival will unveil the new look and a complete marketing package in the fall with a gala party and celebration.

The 1st Annual International Film Festival North Hollywood will take place April 28 – May 1, 2016 in the NoHo Arts District of North Hollywood, California.
