Rattis Films

Brand identity

As the name suggests, Rattis Films is the sister company to Rattis Books. Instead of focusing on independent publishing, Rattis Films celebrates independent cinema, putting on programmes, screenings and events in London’s East End. 

Our task to was to develop an new identity for Rattis Films that had a clear relationship to the original imprint. We redrew the symbol to evoke film, rather than a book, but that kept the connection to the original meaning of ratis – a raft or ship. The word mark used the same bespoke lettering to build the visual link between the two companies. 

Since the launch, we’ve been involved in creating the posters and programmes for the screening events, each one using a custom letterpress printed elements.
