Synposis

Two lives before and after returning to Cameroon. Romeo is disillusioned by Germany and wants to fly back home. Demian got deported and has been trying to return to Germany ever since. How do you manage to live between two worlds, in an unstable present and with an uncertain future?

Approach

The design is based on the bureaucratic way of german government executing immigration law. Documents such as »suspension of deportation« have a certain unempatheic visual appeal. I used this visual language to create the typography, title and credit design. The wavy textured background and the use of the official mono typeface »OCR B Std« create the feeling of unempathatic bureaucracy.
The use of THIS<<SPECIFIC<<TYPE<<<< of naming convention further strengthens such feeling.
